The purpose of this study was to describe the social support, the postpartum depression, and examine the relationship between social support and postpartum depression among primiparas. Postpartum depression wreaks havoc not only on the mother, but also on her child and family, with an incidence of 15.01% in China. The conceptual framework derived from House's conceptualization of social support, and Beck's conceptualization of postpartum depression. A convenient sampling of 200 Chinese postpartum women attending the postpartum check-up clinic of the Teaching Hospital of Peking University, Beijing, China, was selected. The instruments included a Demographic Data Record Form, the Postpartum Social Support Questionnaire (PSSQ), and Chinese version of the Beck Depression Inventory (BDI). The descriptive statistics and Pearson's product-moment correlation coefficient were used to analyze the data. This presentation will discuss the following results: 1. There were 32.50% of the subjects who experienced postpartum depression and 24%, 6%, and 2.50% were classified as mild, moderate and severe depression respectively. 2. The total social support of primiparas at postpartum period was at fair to good level. Regarding the four types of social support, emotional support was reported as the highest score, followed by instrumental, appraisal, and informational support. The major sources of social support for this group were spouses, parents, and parents-in-law. 3. There was a significant and moderately negative relationship (r=-. 44, p< .01) between total social support and postpartum depression among primiparas. As might be expected, with less of any support, then was more depression reported. The findings of this study can be utilized as baseline information in helping nurses who work with new mothers to identify the types of support that can decrease postpartum depression.
