Specializes in Psychiatry

Postpartum: Post partum depression is a complex, common and serious condition. The mainstays of its treatment are 1) properly selected antidepressants 2) peer support. Anyone suffering from it should ask her OB for referral to an experienced psychiatrist --as well as for referral to a local support group. The psychiatrist may suggest psychotherapy as well, which may need only be brief.
