Introduction: The first month after childbirth is the most critical time for mothers and is associated with increased postpartum stress such as stress, disturbed psychological and social balance, rejection of the role of mother and negative physical changes and lack of social support.  Medical problems such as gestational diabetes may lead to postpartum stress. The present study was conducted to determine the relationship between gestational diabetes and postpartum stress in patients referred to Zabol health centers.
Materials and Methods: In this descriptive-analytical study in 2009-2010 on 50 pregnant women with a definite diagnosis of diabetes and 50 healthy pregnant women referred to health centers in Zabol.  Research data were collected using the Midwifery Demographic Questionnaire and the Hyung Postpartum Stress Questionnaire, which include three areas of maternal duties and responsibilities, social and interpersonal problems, and negative physical changes.  Data analysis was performed using SPSS statistical software (version 21) and t-test.  P value less than 0/05 Was considered significant.
Results: Statistical and midwifery variables were similar between the two groups.  Mean postpartum stress score related to achieving maternal role in gestational diabetes group was 110/64±15/46 and control group was 57/76 ± 11/11, mean postpartum stress score associated with negative physical changes in the group.  Gestational diabetes was determined to be 47/05 ± 6/50 and in the control group was 26/32 ± 6/70, the mean score of postpartum stress related to lack of social support in women in the gestational diabetes group was 57/79 ± 8/17and in  The control group was identified as 32/28 ± 4/67. Independent t-test showed that the mean score of postpartum stress related to motherhood, negative physical changes and lack of social support in the two groups of gestational diabetes and control were significantly different. P=  (0/0001)
Conclusion: Gestational diabetes can be a potential risk factor for postpartum stress and tensions. Women in the gestational diabetes group experience more perceived stress.
Therefore, in addition to controlling blood sugar, pregnant women with diabetes should pay more attention to their mental and emotional state and the presence of symptoms of postpartum stress in these patients to prevent its complications.
