Postpartum Depression (PPD) is a serious , debilitating disorder , with onset at the most inopportune time; within the first year following the birth of a baby. Not that there ever is a good time to have depression. But when someone has just had a baby, everyone's expectation is that they would feel joy and fulfillment, rather than deep sadness and hopelessness. As well, the energy and dedication that a baby requires are enormous; two things that mothers who are struggling with depression are likely to be very low on.
