The rate of postpartum depression in women is 10-15%. The symptoms usually occur in the first 6 months after give birth. Patients often complain of sadness, crying, insomnia, tension, and irritability. It is not known exactly why post-partum depression occurs. Especially for women who have given birth first time, life style changes completely, the responsibilities increase, and the time that the person spends for herself decrease. Especially baby's first year is very difficult for the mother. They have to wake up from sleep and feed the baby. The fact that the baby does not express his/her needs makes being inexperienced mother more difficult. A sudden change in postpartum hormone levels also facilitates the emergence of depression. Being depressed before and experiencing depression after previous give births increase of the risk of depression. Mothers may not want to take pill at this time with the thought that it may be harmful to their baby. However, it is necessary to think in true way. It is suggested for these babies, who have sleeping disorders of the depressed mothers, are more restless than the other babies and they do not feel safe and their mental development is slower. Again, the relationship between couples is negatively affected by this situation. Pill treatment is not a necessity for every patient. Patient’s situation has to be reviewed and if it is necessary, other treatment methods can be used. 

Two-thirds of women who has gave birth, live "baby blues" period with sadness and tension. Suddenly sobbing, crying, quick irritation, tension, uneasiness may be seen in the mother. This period usually occurs two or three days after give birth and it is got well spontaneously within a week. It is thought to be due to sudden hormone changes and treatment is not necessary for it.
