The Mediating Role of Parenting Stress in the Relationship Between Anxious and Depressive Symptomatology, Mothers ’ Perception of Infant Temperament, and Mindful Parenting During the Postpartum Period

ConclusionsParenting stress seems to be an important mechanism explaining the associations between maternal anxious and depressive symptomatology, the perception of infant temperament, and mindful parenting. During the postpartum period, it is important to identify mothers with anxious/depressive symptomatology, as they appear to contribute to parenting stress and to be related to parenting skills. Psychological interventions may focus on reducing that symptomatology and parenting stress and promoting mindful parenting skills.

When I mentioned my fear at my six-week follow-up appointment after birth—the sole instance of medical care many new moms receive in the entire year -postpartum—the midwife shrugged and chided me that anxious mothers make anxious children. For more than two years, I worrie...

Most of us are familiar with the term “misogyny.” Today, we regularly hear it in conversation. And we regularly see it all over social media. And yet, misogyny, or misogynist, is largely misunderstood. The dictionary defines misogyny as a hatred, dislike, or mistrust of women, said Jill A. Stoddard, PhD, a psychologist and director of The Center for Stress and Anxiety Management in San Diego.
