ATTITUDE ON POSTPARTUM DEPRESSION AMONG WOMEN
Early adulthood extents from age eighteen to approximately age forty, when the physical and psychological changes which accompany the beginning of the loss of reproductive capacity appear.” Postpartum depression (PPD) is a major form of depression and is less common than postpartum blues. PPD includes all the symptoms of depression but occurs only following childbirth.” stated by William Beardsley. A woman often experiences dramatic physical and psychological changes during the postpartum period that impact health, for some women the postpartum depression is a time of great difficulty and emotional distress. An emotional disturbance, often depression, may significantly reduce the pleasure a women experiences in mothering; it may interfere with the development of a positive mother-child relationship. Such emotional disturbances may be longstanding in the individual, or they may develop suddenly after delivery. The purpose of the study is to find out the attitude of early adult women on postpartum depression and know about the extent to which women are aware about postpartum depression. Accordingly, a group of 100 early adult women (21-40) were selected for the study. The results of the respondents will be discussed.
