postpartum depression vs. postpartum blues

It's very common for new mom's to experience postpartum blues. This involves feelings of sadness, anxiety or confusion mixed with irritability.  If these symptoms get worse instead of better and /or last for more than a few weeks, Postpartum Depression becomes a concern.  Advocate Condell physicians take this concern very seriously and are proactive in screening new and expectant mothers during their prenatal care as well as during the postpartum period.
