[Comorbid Personality Disorders and Parenting Stress in Mothers with Postpartum Depression].Prax Kinderpsychol Kinderpsychiatr. 2016; 65(4):282-6.PK
The original peer-reviewed paper presents the results of the analysis of the effects of psychiatric comorbidities of maternal postpartum depression, anxiety disorder and personality disorder (PD) on parenting stress. In the aforementioned analysis, mothers without PD (depression/ anxiety only) were compared to mothers with Borderline PD and mothers with other PD. Depending on the maternal PD, different sources of parenting stress have been revealed as specific to the mothers’ experience of parenting stress, suggesting differential indications for psychosocial interventions to ease the burden of stress on the mother-infant system.
