Diagnosis and Management of Postpartum Depression

Author(s): Hend Abdelbary Ibrahim Aly

Postpartum Depression (PPD) is a severe mental health problem that affects up to 15% of mothers. It is highly prevalent, and its drawbacks are not limited to the affected mothers. It also extends to their offspring, causing disturbances in their development. Recent research has identified several psychosocial and biological risk factors for PPD, including past depression, stressful life events, poor marital relationships, and social support. The obstetrician, pediatrician and primary health care physicians have a crucial role in screening for and treating PPD. This review aims to provide a holistic approach for PPD diagnosis and management.
