My current research is addressing an educational intervention provided by postpartum nurses and its effect on postpartum depression symptoms. I am also looking at the relationship between postpartum depression and breastfeeding. My previous research work has been also been related to breastfeeding, particularly breastfeeding confidence (self-efficacy). I am also interested in women's health, gender issues, and global health, particularly in interdisciplinary context.
