Taiwanese mothers have identified insufficient sleep as a major manifestation of postpartum depression. Few studies have thoroughly examined the relationship between sleep and depression during the early postpartum period, however. The objectives of this study were to compare the characteristics of both the postpartum sleep and daytime sleepiness of depressed first-time mothers and of their non-depressed counterparts, and to determine the factors that significantly increased mothers' risks of… Expand
Subjective Sleep Quality in Depressed and Non-Depressed Mothers During the Late Postpartum Period

The results indicated that the depressed mothers (EPDS 10) had poorer sleep quality than the non-depressed mothers(EPDS 9). Expand
Patterns of Sleep Disruption and Depressive Symptoms in New Mothers

Research has suggested that a bi-directional relationship exists between sleep disruption and depression. Not only is poor sleep a commonly reported symptom in those with depression, some aspects ofExpand
Poor sleep maintenance and subjective sleep quality are associated with postpartum maternal depression symptom severity
TLDR
There is additional evidence that poor sleep maintenance as measured by wrist actigraphy, rather than lesser amounts of sleep, is associated with EPDS scores during the postpartum period and that subjective assessments of sleep may be more accurate predictors of post partum depression symptoms than wristActigraphy. Expand
Sleep and depression in postpartum women: a population-based study.
TLDR
