PMID:  7980887     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
This paper examines the role of postnatal intervention in the prevention of the negative consequences of postpartum depression on developing mother-infant relationships. It is argued that, once difficulties in these interactions have been identified, direct attempts to modify the interactions must occur within a framework that includes maternal, paternal, partnership/marital and social variables. An intervention program that may be instituted by nurses is described. The Baby Happiness, Understanding, Giving and Sharing (HUGS) Programme is an attempt to integrate direct intervention in mother-infant interactions into a systemic framework which takes into account contextual variables such as cognitive style and social support.
