OBJECTIVE: To review the literature on the association between breastfeeding and postpartum depression.
SOURCES: A review of literature found on MEDLINE/PubMed database.
SUMMARY OF FINDINGS: The literature consistently shows that breastfeeding provides a wide range of benefits for both the child and the mother. The psychological benefits for the mother are still in need of further research. Some studies point out that pregnancy depression is one of the factors that may contribute to breastfeeding failure. Others studies also suggest an association between breastfeeding and postpartum depression; the direction of this association is still unclear.
