Abstract:

Problem: Postpartum depression (PPD) occurs in about 10–15% of women after birth and adversely affects their health and the health of their newborn.  Kangaroo care (KC) is known to have many health-related benefits for both mother and newborn; however, a systematic review of its effects in reducing PPD has not been done.

Purpose: The aim of this review was to gather the evidence linking the effects of KC on PPD, specifically focusing on the proposed underlying mechanism involving the release of oxytocin.

Search Strategy: The review included studies published between 1995 and 2015. Data sources were:  PubMed, CINAHL, and Google Scholar.  Search terms included:  postpartum depression, postnatal depression, oxytocin, oxytocin hormone, central oxytocin, postpartum depression, kangaroo care, and skin-to-skin contact.

Results of literature search: Twenty studies met the search criteria and were included in this review. Most of the studies used descriptive correlational designs; four involved randomized controlled trials; other studies were quasi- experimental, qualitative, or involved meta-analysis.
