Abstract

Objective: Postpartum depression may have important adverse effects on breastfeeding and child development. On the other hand, studies on postpartum depression from developing countries are very rare. This study aims to determine the factors associated with postpartum depression and the effect of postpartum depression on the breastfeeding status and neuromotor development of children in a developing country.
