Postpartum depression: recognition and intervention
Blackmore ER

Abstract Objective: To review the clinical presentation of, risk factors for, and treatment of postpartum depression (PPD). Methods: Case presentation and review of the literature. Results: The timing, presentation, severity, and risk factors for episodes of PPD can vary among individuals. However, known risk factors can be easily elicited and validated tools can be used to detect depressive symptoms. Evidence-based, efficacious treatments are available. Treatment decisions need to be based on a personalized risk-benefit analysis by the mother and provider. Conclusion: Primary care providers are in an excellent position to provide help and care in the identification, treatment, and management of PPD
