New mothers’ thoughts of infant-related harm and their relationship with postpartum OCD and parenting
Until recently, little research had been conducted to investigate new mothers’ thoughts of infant-related harm and their relationship to postpartum obsessive compulsive disorder and parenting behaviours. In this talk I will present data from our pilot study of new mothers’ thoughts of infant-related harm, outline the features and risk factors for postpartum obsessive compulsive disorder and discuss the cognitive behavioural model and treatment of postpartum obsessive compulsive disorder.
