What is Perinatal Depression

Postpartum depression—the depression that occurs in new mothers after their baby’s born — may be better known, but mood disorders during the pregnancy itself are more common in pregnant women than experts once thought.

There’s a collective term now for prenatal depression before the baby’s born and postpartum depression after the baby’s born — perinatal depression.
