Résumé (français)  :

Bien que certaines études suggèrent que la psychothérapie ou les antidépresseurs
sont efficaces pour traiter la dépression postnatale, leur acceptabilité n’a pas encore été beaucoup étudiée. Nous avons interrogé 405 femmes pendant leur séjour en service de maternité sur l’acceptabilité des traitements de la dépression postnatale en utilisant une méthode de mesures répétées après leur accouchement. Ces femmes complétaient des questionnaires évaluant le degré d’acceptabilité des différentes thérapies de la dépression postnatale, avant et après avoir reçu une information sur les connaissances actuelles du traitement de la dépression postnatale par les antidépresseurs, et des effets de ces derniers sur l’allaitement. L’acceptabilité des antidépresseurs était significativement inférieure à tout autre mode de psychothérapie, et significativement d’autant plus lorsque les mères avaient été informées de leurs effets.

Abstract (English)  :

Although some studies suggest the efficacy of psychotherapy or antidepressant drugs for postnatal depression, their acceptability has not been extensively studied. Four hundred and five women consecutively admitted in obstetrical clinics were questioned about acceptability of treatments for postnatal depression using a repeated measures design after delivery, during their stay at the clinic. Mothers completed questionnaires assessing the degree of acceptability of different therapies for postnatal depression before and after receiving information about the current knowledge on antidepressant for postnatal depression and breastfeeding. The different therapies proposed were: psychotherapy by consultation, psychotherapy by home visits and antidepressant medication. The acceptability of antidepressants was significantly lower than either mode of psychotherapy before information was presented about the effects of antidepressants on breastmilk and significantly more so again after the information was given to mothers.
