Postpartum depression (PPD) is a common complication of childbirth that affects approximately 15% of women. Mothers of preterm infants are particularly vulnerable to developing PPD due to the added stressors associated with their infant’s hospitalization and potential medical complications. Skin-to-skin contact (SSC), also known as kangaroo care, has been shown to have numerous benefits for preterm infants, including improved weight gain, reduced length of hospital stay, and increased maternal bonding. The purpose of this study was to investigate the impact of SSC on PPD in mothers of preterm infants.
