- Behavioral: Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale
The Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale is a self-administered questionnaire made up of 10 items scored using a four-point Likert scale (0-3) designed to screen for symptoms of postpartum depression. Postpartum depression represents the end of a continuum of severity of symptoms. The present study used a cutoff point for depressive symptomatology risk of higher than 12.
- Behavioral: Breast Feeding Adherence
This will be addressed according to the breastfeeding initiation practices according to the WHO.
- Behavioral: Fear of Covid-19 Scale
The Fear of Covid-19 Scale is a questionnaire that evaluates fear of the global pandemic caused by the SARS-CoV-2. It consists of seven items, each with a five-point Likert scale of options. The participant is instructed to choose the option that best represents their perception about the statement presented. The maximum possible total is 35 points. The scale's authors indicate that the higher the score is, the higher is the level of the participants' fear of COVID-19.
- Post-Partum Depression Frequency [ Time Frame: Baseline ]To explore the frequency of post-partum depression in women who gave birth during the COVID-19 pandemic
- Breast Feeding Adherence and behavior. [ Time Frame: Baseline ]To explore the breastfeeding behavior of women who gave birth during the COVID-19 pandemic. The investigators asked the patients about the frequency of breastfeeding, the duration in months of how long the mothers breastfed in a previous child, if the participants have breastfed before, and whether the participants exclusively breastfed or complemented the nutrition with formula.
- Fear of Covid-19 severity [ Time Frame: Baseline ]The Fear of Covid-19 Scale (FCV-19S) is a questionnaire that evaluates fear of the global pandemic caused by the SARS-CoV-2. The FVC-19S consists of seven items, such as "It makes me uncomfortable to think about coronavirus-19," "I am afraid of losing my life because of coronavirus-19," and "When watching news and stories about coronavirus-19 on social media, I become nervous or anxious," each with a five-point Likert scale of options. The participant is instructed to choose the option that best represents their perception about the statement presented. The maximum possible total is 35 points. The scale's authors indicate that the higher the score is, the higher is the level of the participants' fear of COVID-19.
