Health professionals play an important role in the detection, diagnosis and treatment of PPD.

 

The prenatal and postpartum periods are times of increased risk for the onset of mood disorders. Mood disorders can range from early postpartum blues to postpartum psychosis, a serious mental health condition. Within this range is postpartum depression (PPD), a major depressive disorder that can occur at any time within the first year following the birth or adoption of a baby.
