With the aim of studying anxiety, depression and prenatal emotional
involvement with the infant, 87 primipa-rous women had fulfilled the
Portuguese version of the Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale,
State-Trait Anxiety Inventory and New Mother-to-Infant Bonding Scale.
High levels of anxious and depressive symptoms as well of emotional
involvement with the infant were found. Anxiety seems to activate
mother's negative emotions toward the infant, but depressive symptoms
account the more for the presence of not clear emotions and poor
attachment to the infant. © Médecine and Hygiène. Tous droits réservés
