A woman’s hormone levels change dramatically after giving birth; in particular, the higher-than-usual levels of estrogen and progesterone suddenly decrease. These hormonal changes may be responsible, in part, for a new mother’s postpartum depression, or baby blues. Postpartum depression can last from hours to months and may range in intensity from mild to severe. Complications During Pregnancy and Childbirth Numerous complications may arise during pregnancy and childbirth.

For instance, children who have been institutionalized without close or continuous attachments for long periods of time display pathological levels of depression, withdrawal, apathy, and anxiety.

In this object-relations theory, the infant interacts with the mother, mostly during times of eye contact and breast-feeding.
