In brief: Therapy & medication
Psychotherapy with a mental health professional with specialization in treatment of postpartum emotional disorders is very effective.
Many women often need medication as well. With treatment, there is a very high success rate.

In brief: Medication
Despite tv commercials blasting their safety, it is a fact that our current anti-depressants (such as zoloft, (sertraline) celexa, etc.
) are extremely helpful, with a rapid response to post-partum depression. In conjunction with counseling (if needed), most women will see a rapid return to normalcy and a happy, enjoyable time with their newborn.
