Help is Just a Call Away for Mothers with Postnatal Depression

23 febrero 2015

New research reveals that telephone-based peer support may help reduce postnatal depression, also known as postpartum depression, in new mothers. Researchers also found that social support from peers may be effective for maternal depression up to two years after delivery. At the start of the study all mothers were moderately depressed, but this dropped after telephone peer support to 8.1% (3/37) depressed at midpoint, rising to 11.8% (4/34) at the end of the study, suggesting some relapse.
