Abstract: Maternity blues is a transient mild depressive state in the early puerperium. In the present study, we investigated the occurrence and features of the maternity blues on the 6th and 7th days after delivery, using the Beck depression Inventory. The subjects were 180 women. Their most common symptoms were physical, such as weight loss, fatigability, sleep disturbance and loss of libido. Using a total score of 10 as a cut-off point, 41 women (22.8%) were depressed. This incidence is higher than it is in endogenous postartum depression. And in this depressed group, the psychological symptoms, such as sense of failure, self accusations and irritability frequently occurred in addition to the physical ones. Further analysis by principal component analysis (quantification type 3) revealed that the symptoms specific to endogenous depression were different from those of the maternity blues, such as crying spells and depressed moods. However, crying spells, the core symptom of the maternity blues, were more closely related to the physical symptoms. The presence of obstetric disorder were not related to other depressive complaints.
