Background: The Postpartum depression has a negative effect on the infant’s developmental and behavioral performance, mother-child relationship and mother‘s health, and its etiology is also very complicated.

Primiparous women according to presence (n=103) or absence (n=102) of postpartum depression (PPD< 12: without depression) were selected using purposeful sampling. The measurement tools included the demographic questionnaire, Edinburgh postpartum Depression Scale (EPDS) and Cognitive Emotion Regulation Questionnaire (CERQ). The data were analyzed using SPSS software and the logistic regression method.
Results: The results showed positive cognitive strategies including acceptance, positive re-focus and re-focus on planning have a negative relationship with the postpartum depression (P<0.001).
