INTRODUCTIONThe proposal is about impact of maternal depression in Afro Caribbean children in UK. Itis required to look into the depth of the reason for which maternal depression is considered to bea taboo in Afro- Caribbean women. There will be analysis of the effects that maternal depressionhas on the attachment, education, behavior etc. in Afro- Caribbean children. Further, the effectsof present research on social practice will also be considered.The proposal for systematic review is structured as follows. A contextual review ofbackground has been provided to give rational for the research. Research questions have beenclearly outlined. Research design has been provided along with the ethical issues.

Barker and et.al (2012) conducted astudy on relative impact of maternal depression and associated risk factors on psychopathologyof offspring. The authors measured child diagnoses by using Development and well beingAssessment (DAWBA) (Barker and et.al., 2012).Babatunde and Moreno-Leguizamon (2012) conducted a study on daily and culturalissues of post natal depression in African women immigrants in South East London.
