Clinical Trial Summary

This study aims to examine the relation between iron status and maternal-child interactions as well as maternal depressive symptoms in mothers from central Pennsylvania.


Clinical Trial Description

Investigators aim to follow mothers and their infants from 6 weeks to 6 months in the postpartum to understand the relation between iron status and mother-child interactions and depressive symptoms. During this period, iron deficient anemic mothers will receive an intervention with iron with the scope of improving iron status, reducing their depressive symptoms, and in turn, increasing the quality of parenting behaviors during mother-child interactions. The control group will be iron sufficient mothers who will receive a placebo. ;
