Abstract
Objective: Carry out maternal health education during pregnancy and childbirth, conduct observation and analysis of maternal breastfeeding behavior. Methods: take 120 pregnant women attending our hospital during the period of February 2017 to January 2018, randomly divide them into control group and observation group. The control group is given only routine nursing intervention while the observation group is given both routine nursing intervention as well as mental health education. After that, we compare the nursing effects including the time gap when breasts start to make milk, postpartum depression and the feeding situation. Compared with the control group, the time gap for breast starting to produce milk is shorter than the control group, and there is a significant difference between the groups (P<0.05). The percentage of exclusive breastfeeding in the observation group is significantly higher, and the appearance of postpartum depression significantly decreased, the differences between the groups is significant (P<0.05), and women have postpartum depression are relieved while their mental health education knowledge is strengthened. Conclusion: the implementation of mental health education nursing intervention can help pregnant women control their emotions, enhance their mental capacity, relieve postpartum depression, adapt to this special period and adjust breastfeeding along with higher nursing satisfaction rate and is worthy of clinical significance.
