It appears as principal axle of boarding, the qualitative investigation. On the one hand, one tries to rescue the aspects sociodemographic by means of an analysis disintegrated of each of the variables. And for other one, to rescue the sociocultural factors, to be considering the oral expressions of the women's principal axles to identify the manifestation of the depression in the relation mother - child.
