In brief: Not As Common

It is certainly possible for women to struggle with depression during pregnancy, and those who would be most likely to have depression would be women who have a history of depression or who are experiencing severe stress or lack of support in their environment.
However, in general the pospartum period is a time of greater risk for depression compared to during pregnancy.
