Abstract [en]

The purpose of this randomized controlled study was to investigate the effect of internet- administered guided self-help for women suffering from psychological problems following traumatic childbirth. The eight-week treatment program consisted of written chapters based on cognitive behavioral therapy. 56 participants were randomly assigned to a treatment group (n = 28) or a waiting list group (n = 28).The results showed that post-traumatic symptoms decreased as a result of the treatment, with large within-group effects measured by both the Traumatic Event Scale (TES) (d = 1.33) and the Impact of Event Scale-Revised (IES-R) (d = 1.3). The difference between the groups was only significant when measured by the IES-R in which case the between-group effect was large (d = 0.97). The proportion of the participants who showed clinically significant improvement was considerably greater in the treatment group than in the waiting list group. For other measured outcomes, the Beck Depression Inventory-II (BDI-II), Beck Anxiety Inventory (BAI), and the Quality of Life Inventory (QOLI), the difference between the groups were not significant,however the treatment group showed significant improvements between pre-and post measurements on all accounts.LAURA is most likely the first study to examine the treatment of psychological problems following traumatic childbirth. The results are promising and overall show that internet-administered cognitive behavioral therapy reduces post-traumatic symptoms following a traumatic childbirth, indicating a decrease in symptoms of anxiety and depression, and an improvement in quality of life.
