Reevaluation: Post partum depression is very common. Typically if patients are asking about it then they likely are at risk. It is often missed because doctors do not screen for it and patients are often embarrassed to bring it up. I would suggest scheduling a follow up visit with your doctor or even a Healthtap virtual visit to discuss in more detail
