Description: Following childbirth, about 10 to 15 percent of all women experience postpartum depression, or PPD, which is depression associated with the aftermath of pregnancy. About 30 to 70 percent experience symptoms for one year or even longer. Most women with postpartum depression are diagnosed with minor depression, but 4 to 5 percent meet the criteria for major depression. Please join Dr. Treece, Dr. Hollier, Leslie French and Lisa Ramirez to examine case studies and learn more about PPD risk factors, symptoms, screening tools, diagnosis, treatment, services available, and data tracking.
