Perinatal Depression -More Common Than You Think

Perinatal depression reportedly affects 10 - 20% of women, making it the most common birth related complication - more common than preterm birth, pre-eclampsia , postpartum hemorrhage or infection.

Postpartum depression can start and last well beyond a woman's 6 week postpartum check -- leaving many undiagnosed and untreated.
