Background: Postpartum depression is a serious and persistent psychological disorder that sometimes causes disability in the daily functioning and activity of the individual. The aim of this study was to evaluate the rate of depression in both normal and selective delivery cesarean groups and their neonatal outcomes.
Methods: The present study was a two-stage, descriptive-analytic study. A simple random sampling was available with satisfaction from 80 pregnant nursing mothers, single term pregnancies, without history of drug use and history of chronic disease and complications of pregnancy. Demographic questionnaire and standard Beck questionnaire were used to collect data. Data analysis was performed at the significant level of p <0.05 using SPSS software version 20.
Results: The mean depression score in the selected cesarean section (8.09) was higher than the normal delivery group (7.70). This difference was not significant significantly. No significant relationship was found between demographic characteristics and depression. There was a significant relationship between mean depression score and physical activity during pregnancy (p <0.05).
Conclusion: Although the mean postpartum depression in the two groups did not differ significantly, the high mean depression score in our cesarean section led us to physical exercises, giving the mother the opportunity to initiate spontaneous pain and normal delivery. We will also see improvement in fetal weights.
Keywords: Normal delivery, Elective cesarean section, Neonatal outcomes
