ABSTRACT
This study discusses the cultural understanding and interpretation of postpartum depression among immigrant Caribbean women and their healthcare providers' while there is some understanding of postpartum depression in the general female population, it is not yet known how postpartum depression is manifested among women of different racial and cultural backgrounds and therefore the risk of mismanagement by care providers without adequate cultural awareness to this segment. Twenty health care providers participated in this research and results indicate misconceptions and inconsistences in their management of symptomatic Caribbean women as a result of difference in cultural understanding and interpretation of their health condition.
