Screening for postpartum depression
Ask your doctor about screening for postpartum depression (PPD) before and after you give birth.
PPD screening can be a normal part of your pre- and postnatal checkups. Answering a few questions about your feelings over the previous week could help determine if you have PPD.
You may be asked PPD screening questions after you give birth. PPD is an important topic to discuss before you go home with your baby!
