Abstract:

Post-partum depression (PPD) presents a significant disruption to the mother–infant relationship. Such disruptions are associated with risks to the neurological, socio-emotional and cognitive functioning of the developing infant. A review of this literature supports the early detection of PPD and the application of comprehensive, psychotherapeutic interventions that target the functioning of the infant, the mother and the mother–infant relationship. Ecological factors important to evaluation and avenues of intervention are emphasised. The need for further research to determine evidence-based methods of intervention is described.
