Postpartum Depression Risks Linked To Breastfeeding Practice
A recent study examined the association between breastfeeding status with postpartum depression risk using a large national population-based dataset of 29,685 women. Results of the study demonstrated that postpartum depression is a significant health issue among American women with nearly 13% of the sample being at risk. It was also observed that women who were currently breastfeeding at the time of data collection had a statistically significant lower risk of postpartum depression than women who were not breastfeeding. It suggests that breastfeeding as a cost efficient and healthy behavior that can decrease a woman's risk for PPD and nurses should educate and promote the maternal mental health benefits of breastfeeding in addition to the health benefits for the infant.
