Abstract  
Objective: The authors aimed to determine risk factors for postpartum depression (PPD) in this prospective study. Materials and Methods: The study included 285 pregnant women. The first assessment was conducted during pregnancy and a second time at 24 weeks after delivery. The participants were asked to fill out a series of questionnaires, which included psychosocial variables and sociodemographic characteristics, the Beck Depression Inventory (BDI), and Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale (EPDS). After delivery, 276 mothers participated again in the study and filled out a similar series of questionnaires. Results: A significant difference was not found between the socio-demographic and obstetric factors of mothers. A significant relation was found between the BDI score, which is used in antepartum depression evaluation, and EPDS score, which is used on postpartum depression evaluation (rho: 0.433 to 0.645, p < 0.0001). In cases in which BDI score was more than 6 were selected, phenomena in which could develop PPD had 90.3% sensitivity and 45.3% specificity. Conclusions: The authors found that there was a correlation between EPDS score and BDI. The rate of PPD was found to be significantly higher in women, who had a depression history. Patients who have a potential risk of PPD should be evaluated during the postpartum period in terms of depression.
