The purposes of this longitudinal study were: 1) to identify the main and interaction effects of maternal employment status and infant's gestational status on mother's physical health, mental health, and role performance, 2) to examine significant predictors for recovery of maternal health, and 3) to examine differences in health outcomes over time during the first 3 months postpartum. A sample of 131 mothers was recruited with equal numbers of mothers who delivered full term or preterm infants through the postpartum unit. Findings indicated that mothers of preterm infants reported higher levels of fatigue in the morning, more negative affect, less positive affect than mothers of full term infants at 6 weeks and 3 months postpartum, and less role functional status at 3 months postpartum. With hierarchical multiple regressions, lower family income and more difficult infant temperament were related to poorer health outcomes. Sense of mastery was a significant mediator between postpartum stimuli and health outcomes. Health indicators changed significantly over time but there was no main or interaction effect for maternal employment status. This study enhanced the understanding of postpartum health of mothers with preterm infants as well as those with full term infants during the 3 months postpartum.
