PREPP: Preventing Postpartum Depression

Of the nearly 4 million mothers delivering live births each year in the United States, approximately 560,000 or 14% will develop major or minor depression within the first four months postpartum, when the rate peaks. This number dwarfs prevalence rates for gestational diabetes (2-5%) and is comparable to preterm birth ...
