Role of Intrapartum Social Support in Preventing Postpartum Depression.

A cross-sectional, multicenter study examined the role of intrapartum social support (SS) on postpartum depression (PPD), using survey data that covered eight of the 25 PPD risk factors identified by a recent umbrella review. A total of 204 women participated at an average of 1.26 months after birth. An existing U.S. Listening to Mothers-II/Postpartum survey questionnaire was translated, culturally adapted, and validated. Multiple linear regression found four statistically significant independent variables. A path analysis determined that prenatal depression, pregnancy and childbirth complications, intrapartum SS from healthcare providers and partners, and postpartum SS from husbands and others were significant predictors of PPD, while intrapartum and postpartum SS were intercorrelated. In conclusion, intrapartum companionship is as important as postpartum SS in preventing PPD.
