Summary
This study reports on a qualitative inquiry conducted with five professionals who work with women from gestation through the postpartum timeframe. Participants were recruited via a purposive sample of convenience and included professionals from the fields of nursing, midwifery and social work. Semi-structured interviews explored their experiences of the manifestation of postpartum psychological distress in mothers and focused on their conceptualisation and responses to the phenomenon. The findings reveal that participants believe postpartum distress cannot be sufficiently explained by biomedical factors alone, but needs to be understood within a framework that comprises multifaceted explanations that take into account the social construction of mothering and the context in which it takes place, in order to fully appreciate the complexity of this phenomenon. The study found that inadequacies in statutory and community services available to women means that responses are not always well aligned with their stated needs. The study suggests the need to develop greater integration across multi-disciplinary teams and with statutory and community agencies to provide services that are responsive to women's physical, social, material and emotional health and wellbeing--Abstract
