In brief: 5-25 %
Depending on how the studies have defined depression (major versus minor, etc.
) and whether postpartum depression has been included in that definition, the incidence has been estimated at anywhere from 5-25%. If there are any concerns about possible depression, have a conversation with your provider.

In brief: Common and treatable
When feelings of sadness keep you from performing your daily activities, caring for your baby, or isolating yourself; then you may be experiencing more than "postpartum blues".
See your doctor immediately as medication and therapy can be so helpful.
