Abstract

Postpartum depression, a common complication of childbearing in many countries, affects more than 10% postpartum women. As a public health issue imposes a great burden on families, society and postpartum women. Many scholars contribute the efforts in the diagnosis, mechanism and management of problem, also the stress it may occur. Different from prior concerns, this study tried to listen to postpartum women to see how much they know about postpartum depression, in order to develop knowledge and prevent the strategies related to postpartum depression. Purposive sampling with open-end questions was applied in this study. Qualitative analysis was applied to achieve the target of this study. The results of this study indicated that postpartum women believed that postpartum depression is a negative emotion, emotional instability and loss of pressure, generated is also a depression. Moreover, in postpartum women’s point of view, postpartum depression related to poor children health status, less family support.
