For most parents, the transition to parenthood is joyful and exciting and a positive experience. However, this transition can also bring distress for some parents, such as teenage mothers, adult victims of child abuse, or those who have difficulties in the marriage or partnership prior to the birth of the child. Signs of depression and distress in the mother or father prior to or after the birth of the child are associated with parenting stress. In this chapter, the connection between parenting stress and the health and functioning of the parent is examined. It also discusses some of the factors that may influence or influenced by stress and coping during the transition to parenthood.
