With postpartum depression, your symptoms are more severe and can last for several months or years.
Your risk for postpartum depression increases if you have a history of depression, bipolar disorder, or other mental health conditions. You may also be at risk if you experience excessive stress during your pregnancy or expect multiple babies.
