Abstract [en]

Postnatal depression (PND) is a condition which affects about 8-15% of recent parents. The cause of PND is unknown but several underlying factors have been purposed through different studies. This descriptive literature review aims to illuminate the parent’s situation when the mother is affected with PND. In search of literature, the databases Medline (via PubMed), Academic Search Elite, Cinahl, PsycINFO, PsycARTICLES and SweMed+ were used. Fourteen articles were finally included in this study. The result of the chosen articles, both from the woman’s and the men’s perspective, could be divided into three categories; thoughts and feelings about the own situation, thoughts and feelings surrounding the partner and the baby and thoughts and feelings about the perception of support. The women felt that the expectations they had of motherhood, before the baby was born, was not matched by later experiences and they perceived themselves as bad mothers. They also found it hard to talk about their feelings with both their partner and with people outside the family, thinking that no one would understand. The men felt as though they, due to their partner’s condition, had lost control of life and that there, for them, was no organized help or support available.

Abstract [sv]

Postnatal depression (PND) är ett tillstånd som drabbar ca 8-15% av nyblivna föräldrar. Orsaken till PND är inte känd men flera troliga bakomliggande faktorer har föreslagits genom olika studier. Föreliggande beskrivande litteraturstudie syftar till att belysa föräldrarnas situation när modern drabbats av PND. Vid sökning av litteratur användes databaserna Medline (via Pubmed), Academic Search Elite, Cinahl, PsycINFO, PsycARTICLES och SweMed+. Fjorton artiklar inkluderades slutligen i studien. Resultatet av valda artiklar kunde, både ur kvinnans och ur mannens perspektiv, delas in i tre kategorier; tankar och känslor om sin egen situation, tankar och känslor omkring partnern och barnet samt tankar och känslor om upplevelsen av stöd. Kvinnorna upplevde att de förväntningar de haft på moderskapet före barnets födelse inte överensstämde med den senare erfarenheten och de uppfattade sig själva som dåliga mammor. De upplevde det även svårt att tala om sina känslor, både med partnern och med personer utanför familjen, i tron att ingen skulle förstå. Männen upplevde att de, i och med partnerns tillstånd, förlorade kontrollen över livet och att det, för dem, inte fanns organiserad hjälp eller stöd att få.
