Cowan, Carolyn Pape; Cowan, Philip A.
Family Relations, v44 n4 p412-23 Oct 1995
Data shows couples in low-risk circumstances experience individual and marital distress after having a baby; however, no services exist to ease this transition. Interventions have been offered to high-risk mothers, but few are based on before-to-after parenthood studies that would identify risk factors. Describes interventions in both populations and attempts to integrate ideas. (JBJ)
