dc.description.abstractBringing a child into the world can be a joyous and exciting occasion for some new mothers, but for some mothers it can be a time of intense anxiety and fear. This literature review will look closely at the post-partum period; differentiating between “baby blues” and the symptoms of post-partum depression (PPD). Focusing on African American females who live in low socioeconomic urban environments, culture, biology, family history, and both emotional and instrumental support, will be explored. Despite the dearth in literature, the author will build upon the existing research by examining how these factors may influence the development of PPD in African American mothers. Additionally, counseling implications will be discussed in regards to treatment options and the importance of social support among women who suffer from PPD.
