Abstract

Objective The aim of our study was to explore the relationship between a medium-scale earthquake and maternal depression and child-rearing in a depopulated community in the Noto Peninsula of Japan. Methods Three months after a major earthquake, selfrating questionnaires were distributed to women who were pregnant at the time of the earthquake or who became pregnant immediately thereafter, and who were receiving care at any of four major hospitals in the most devastated area. A total of 155 women who had given birth returned the completed questionnaire for analysis. Maternal postnatal depression among the participants was assessed using the Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale (EPDS). Results The EPDS score was significantly associated with decreased satisfaction with delivery (β = -0.28, p = 0.01), increased artificial lactation (β = 0.31, p = 0.002), and increased trouble with infant care (β = 0.47, p
