Social support moderates the relation between childhood trauma and prenatal depressive symptoms in adolescent mothers

These results highlight the importance of social support and inform prenatal depression prevention/intervention strategies particularly with pregnant adolescents.PMID:34120538 | DOI:10.1080/02646838.2021.1938980

The current study aims to explore how intensive mothering ideology may evolve after childbirth in both primiparous and multiparous women, and whether any observed changes in this ideology impact maternal mental health.

AbstractNumerous studies report that some first-time parents experience a decline in relationship quality and an increase in conflict after the birth of a first baby.

We investigated the feasibility of a brief preventative couple-focused psychotherapeutic intervention in the perinatal period in a general population sample. Sixty couples expecting their first baby were recruited from the Royal Free Hospital, London. Thirty were randomly assigned to treatment (TMT, ...
