In brief: Onset of PPD..

Postpartum depression can present anytime in the first year. It is most common to begin within the first 3 to 4 months.
However it can begin later in the first year, particularly with changes like abruptly stopping nursing, beginning of birth control pills, etc. If you suspect you may have ppd, contact your dr. And seek help from a mental health specialist with expertise in treating it.

In brief: 11-42%

This is very common, with as many as 42% of moms experiencing ppd.
The risk is higher if there is a personal or family history of ppd, depression, or anxiety.
