How Is It Treated?

Counseling, antidepressants and hormone therapy are the common forms of treating post-partum depression. A psychiatrist, psychologist or other mental health professional is a source of counseling. Because of breastfeeding, a woman must be sure anti-depressants and hormone therapy does not affect the health of her baby. A woman experiencing psychosis would be closely monitored in a hospital setting. (Photo: Joe Raedle/Getty Images)
