Did You know....
    While more common than gestational diabetes, preeclampsia, and preterm delivery,
    postpartum depression has received much less attention in contemporary medical literature,
    training, and clinical practice. Although both the academic and lay press have recently
    increased the focus on postpartum depression, this condition remains a frequently overlooked
    illness despite its potentially devastating consequences. Debate continues about its cause,
    definition, diagnostic criteria, and even its existence as a distinct entity.

Postpartum depression is a very real and very serious problem for many mothers.
It can happen to a first time mom or a veteran mother. It can occur a few days... or
a few months after childbirth.
