Abstract

Background: Postpartum depression (PPD) affects 10-20% of women within 4-6 weeks following delivery. In order to obtain an early diagnosis, tools such as the Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale (EPDS) and the Postpartum Depression Predictors Inventory (PDPI) have been constructed. Aim of the study: The aim of this study was to identify PPD risk factors. Materials and methods: The 348 women who made up the initial sample gave birth in the Gynaecology and Obstetrics Unit of the "San Martino" Hospital, Genoa. A first evaluation with EDPS and PDPI tests took place 48 hours after delivery and a second evaluation one month after delivery with EPDS. The data collected after 48 hours were compared with the 1-month EPDS score. In addition, the 48-hour EPDS and the 1-month EPDS scores were also compared. Results: From the socio-demographic standpoint, the sample was homogeneous. Depression during pregnancy and a history of abortion proved to be correlated with a 1-month EPDS score ≥10. Conclusions: Depression during pregnancy and a history of abortion are the factors most strongly associated with a high risk of developing PPD. No statistically significant correlation was found between EPDS scores recorded at 48 hours and those recorded 1 month after delivery.
