The American Psychological Association states that approximately 1 in 7 women experiences postpartum depression. Postpartum depression is a serious mood disorder, and it’s not the same as the “baby blues.” Any new mother could experience postpartum depression, regardless of demographics or her pregnancy experience. It can appear several months after a woman has a baby, and it can last for months if it’s not treated.
