Background and aim: The human propensity for religion is as old as the history of mankind. Thus, spiritual beliefs are of great importance in a person’s life and the Holy Qur'an, the last book sent by God to guide mankind, pays great attention to this issue. Empirical studies confirm the consistency of findings on the relationship between religiosity and depression. The aim of the present study was to investigate the relationship between religiosity and depression in postpartum women.
Materials and methods: The population of this descriptive cross-sectional analytical study was women who gave birth in 2021 at Ibn Sina Hospital in Nurabad City, Delfan County. This study used the Religious Attitudes Questionnaire (Serajzadeh, 2013) and Beck Depression Inventory (1961), which included 30 and 21 questions, respectively. For sampling, 341 questionnaires were collected from women in the midwifery department of Ibn Sina Hospital.
Findings: The value of the standardized regression coefficient (B) in this model was 0.645, indicating that the correlation between the independent and dependent variables is adequate. The coefficient of determination (R2) or the square of the multiple correlation coefficients was 0.416, representing that 41.6% of the variance of the dependent variable (depression) is explained by the independent variables (religiosity and its components).
Conclusion: The present study has shown that there is a close relationship between religiosity and postpartum depression in women. Therefore, it seems that religiosity can lead to an improvement in the mental health of postpartum women.
