Depression During Pregnancy

Both postpartum depression and the baby blues can occur in the mother after she delivers, and many in the medical and non-medical communities are aware of this. But fewer are aware of depression during pregnancy, a problem that can go untreated. The reason it’s not recognized is that some of the obvious symptoms of depression, like tiredness, trouble sleeping, emotional changes and weight gain may occur with pregnancy. One in twenty women experience depression while pregnant.
