How does PPD affect the body?

PPD is a mood disorder that affects about 15% of women within the first year of childbirth. Women with PPD experience feelings of extreme sadness, hopelessness, suicidal ideation, anxiety, and fatigue. These symptoms mirror those of a major depressive episode with the additional criteria that the onset of depression occurs within 4 weeks of childbirth. PPD can affect a mother’s ability to care for her child and may negatively affect a child’s cognitive development.
