PPD and Bipolar?

It has come to our attention that a number of women are confused about the potential relationship between postpartum depression and bipolar illness.

My recent psychology today post sheds some light on this and hopefully, will help clarify some issues.

As always, always let your treating physician know what your concerns are.

Clinician Note: If you are not already doing so, please remember to screen all postpartum women for symptoms of bipolar illness according to the DSM-IV criteria.
