According to a recent analysis by CDC, the rate of pregnant women with a depression diagnosis at delivery increased by seven times from 2000 to 2015. Additionally, recent CDC research shows that about 1 in 8 women experience symptoms of postpartum depression.
Having a baby is challenging and every woman deserves support. If you are experiencing emotional changes or think that you may be depressed, make an appointment to talk to your health care provider as soon as possible. Most people get better with treatment and getting help is the best thing you can do for you and your baby.
