Aims: Depression during pregnancy is one of the risk factors for postpartum depression and other complications of mothers and infants. The objective of this study was to determine the relationships between social support and marital satisfaction with depression during pregnancy.
Materials & Methods: This descriptive-correlational study was conducted on 70 pregnant women who referred to private clinics of Karaj (Iran) during a period of 6 months to receive prenatal care in the last 3 months of gestation. The information of the women was collected by Beck depression inventory (BDI-II), Enrich marital satisfaction and Wax social support (SS-A) questionnaires. The data were analyzed by correlation coefficient, regression variance analysis (univariate and multivariate) using SPSS software.
Findings: There were significant correlations between depression during pregnancy with social support (r= -0.368) and marital satisfaction (r=-0.316). Social support and marital satisfaction predicted 15.3% of prenatal depression’s variances. Social support was a better predictor for prenatal depression than marital satisfaction.
Conclusion: There are significant correlations between depression during pregnancy with social support and marital satisfaction. Social support has a more important role in the prediction of depression during pregnancy than marital satisfaction.
