Canadian living environments range from rural to semi urban, urban areas and huge urban metropolitan. A recent study from Canada discovered that women who are inhabitants of urban areas with a population of more than 500,000 people are more likely to develop Postpartum Depression than their peers in other less populated regions.
There are many reasons that create accountability for the statement of the report. The women in the urban areas have a higher chance of having a history of depression. In addition to that, absence of social support is a major hazardous factor for Postpartum Depression.
Frankly, it’s not the climatic conditions or environmental surroundings that develop Postpartum Depression but it is due to the characteristics of the inhabitants residing in the areas. Reports suggest the women living in the urban areas are less probable to have a sufficient social support during pregnancy and after baby’s birth. Moreover, their health statistics are also poor in such conditions. Keeping in account almost all relevant points like mood, mental state and behavior of women (from urban areas) in post pregnancy conditions, it has been assumed that there is a high need to aware the inhabitants of urban areas about the cultural framework in order to fight against Postpartum Depression.
