Salud mental de las madres en duelo luego de una catástrofe natural

La morbilidad psicológica luego del terremoto fue generalizada entre las madres en duelo, pero la prevalencia fue menor entre las mujeres que habían tenido un nuevo hijo. Es necesario contar con investigaciones sobre la maduración de estos nuevos hijos ya que, en su mayoría, recibieron cuidados por parte de madres con síntomas psicológicos clínicamente significativos que podrían disminuir la capacidad de atender las necesidades del niño.
