Description

Postpartum depression is a common and often confusing experience for many women within six months of childbirth, effecting close to a quarter of women. While the transition into a new partnership with a spouse, postpartum depression may affect one's perceived ability to parent their new child well. This study investigates the effects of postpartum depression on parent efficacy in couples who have been married for five years or less, the hypothesis being that parent efficacy would decrease between the time of pregnancy to the postpartum stage in couples who are experiencing postpartum depression. Data will be analyzed using an ANOVA.
