Postpartum depression


Postpartum depression (PPD) is moderate to severe depression in women after birth. It may occur up to one year after birth, most often in first three months, and affects 10-20% of mothers. Our purpose for reviewing the literature is to identify a potential link between PPD and mode of delivery and to inform the postpartum woman of any increased risk she may have to the development of postpartum depression.
