Postpartum depression is a form of clinical depression that can occur in mothers after giving birth. The
CDC estimates that about 1 in 9 women may go through postpartum depression after their pregnancy
and childbirth.

Dr. Andrew Kim M.D., a board certified psychiatrist and a principal investigator at Pillar Clinical Research,
provides a general overview of postpartum depression to help you better understand the common signs
and symptoms, what some of the risk factors for postpartum depression are, and what the general
treatment approaches are. Bottom line, if you feel you are or may be going through postpartum
depression, YOU ARE NOT ALONE. Please speak with your loved ones or your healthcare providers to let
them know how you are feeling and to help get you some support and assistance.
