Few studies exist that examine the relationship between depression and prenatal self-care in HIV-positive Thai pregnant women. Based on Rosenbaum’s theory of learned resourcefulness, this comparative study, conducted in Bangkok, examined the effect of depression on resourcefulness and on prenatal self-care. In particular, the mediating effect of resourcefulness on the relationship between depression and prenatal self-care in pregnant Thai women with HIV (N=77) were compared with those without HIV (N=77). Independent-sample t-tests revealed that pregnant women with HIV had significantly higher depression and reported significantly fewer prenatal self-care practices than those without HIV. However, the groups did not differ significantly on resourcefulness. Since a significant positive relationship between education and resourcefulness was found, education was used as a covariate in the analysis. ANCOVA showed significant mean differences for depression, resourcefulness, and prenatal self-care between these two groups. The results supported a model proposing that depression had direct effects on resourcefulness and prenatal self-care in both groups. However, HIV status had no significant effect on prenatal self-care in the model. Resourcefulness was found to mediate the relationship between depression and prenatal self-care in the pregnant Thai women. Future research will focus on the effect of resourcefulness training in these groups.
