How Many Women Have Postpartum Depression?

Northwestern University Medicine this year screened 10,000 women after their pregnancies and found that 14 percent of them had postpartum depression. Of the women who had tested positive for depression, 30 percent of them had been experiencing depression prior to pregnancy, 40 percent post-pregnancy and 30 percent during pregnancy.
