Abstract: Postpartum depression is a common psychological disorder among pregnant women at present. It mainly occurs from the period of pregnancy to one year postpartum. Postpartum depression belongs to the special group of pregnant women, which has an impact on the physical psychology of pregnant women and even the life, health and safety of infants. With the current development of medical care in China, postpartum depression has been paid attention to by the majority of medical patients. Medical staff and maternal family members also began to pay attention to their mental health problems in maternal care, so as to ensure that maternal mood is comfortable and smooth delivery. This paper mainly studies the impact of continuous nursing model on maternal depression and delivery outcome. This paper expounds the situation of maternal depression, and then takes action on continuous nursing intervention measures, psychological counseling, nursing guidance and regular return visit guidance. In this paper, 150 pregnant women were divided into experimental group and control group to study the depression and delivery outcome of the two groups. The depression of pregnant women was evaluated by SDS and EPDS. The influence of maternal depression on delivery outcome was studied by studying the birth weight, length and gestational age of newborns. The experimental results show that continuous nursing has a good effect on alleviating maternal depression. Before the artificial continuous nursing intervention, there was little difference between the SDS and EPDS scores of the two groups. However, in the measurement of the scale after the continuous nursing intervention, the SDS depressive tendency of the pregnant women in group A was 31.23, which was much lower than that of the pregnant women in group B. in terms of EPDS scale, the depressive tendency of pregnant women in group A was 33.15, which was far less than that of pregnant women in group B was 39.12.
