How Common is Postpartum Depression?

Postpartum depression is the most common complication of pregnancy and childbirth. It affects up to 400,000 women a year.

Women are two times as likely, as men, to suffer from depression and that risk increases significantly during their childbearing years.

How Severe Can Postpartum Depression Be?

Unfortunately postpartum depression is the leading cause of maternal death in the first two years after childbirth, which makes it a significant public health concern right now.

If you or a loved one is suffering from depression, get in contact with a CHI Health therapist as soon as possible.
