Introduction: Postpartum depression is the most important mood disorder after delivery, in which lack of particular attention and appropriate treatment may result in irreversible damage. Regarding the etiology of depression with respect to delivery mode, we aimed to determine the difference of depression scale between women with normal and those with cesarean section delivery.
Methods: In the current study, a causal-comparative methodology was applied. The statistical group of this research included pregnant women who had referred to Arak hospitals for delivery during May-June 2016. By using convenience sampling method, 142 women (70 normal delivery and 72 cesarean section) were selected. The research variables included demographic information and Edinburg’s Postpartum Depression Scale (EPDS). Collected data was analysed using SPSS software and independent T-test was used for analyzing the quantitative variables.
Results: The results showed the mean postpartum depression score was 12.09 in women with normal delivery and 12.02 in women with cesarean section. Based on T- test results, there was no significant difference in depression scores between groups of normal delivery and cesarean section  (sig: 0.486, T: 1.69).
Conclusion: The current study did not find any difference in postpartum depression between two groups of women with normal delivery and women with cesarean section. According to the EPDS, delivery mode had no influence on the occurrence of postpartum depression.
