Calling A Doctor In Postpartum Depression Cases

Normally, the postpartum depression starts maybe two or three weeks after the delivery. Dr. Jila Senemar, Obstetrician and Gynecologist with Baptist Health South Florida, recommends if a relative has somebody that's having the baby blues, but they are not getting better within a week or two, that's when they need to ask for help. Postpartum depression also can happen with a miscarriage or stillbirth, affirms Dr. Senemar, who adds It's worse in patients who’ve had difficulty to conceive and cannot carry the pregnancy to term.
