What is Postpartum Depression?

One in five women will experience a mood disorder during their pregnancy or after the birth or adoption of a child. PMD is the most common complication of childbirth. Postpartum depression and anxiety are the most common mood disorders. Symptoms can start suddenly or they can happen gradually and get worse; this is often when a woman starts to realize that what she is feeling is more than the blues. If you haven’t been feeling like yourself for more than two weeks you need to talk to your health care provider.
