late onset PPD? — The Bump
Postpartum Depression

late onset PPD?

Just curious if PPD can come on later than the initial 6 weeks after giving birth? Has anyone experienced this? My LO is 3months and things feel very differently emotionally all of a sudden. Pregnancy Ticker Baby Birthday Ticker Ticker image image

Re: late onset PPD?

  • Yes, absolutely. Any time in the first year is still considered PPD.

    Yes, I finally realized I needed some help when DD was 5 months old.

  • I'd say so. DS is about 3 1/2 months and mine seems to kicked in more so lately. Not sure if it's the recent anniversary of my daughter's death or the stress I've been under lately.

  • me too. I had bad baby blues 2 weeks PP, but now at 5 months PP, I finally went to get help and started medication a week ago. No difference yet, I am still having a rough time. I have some great days and some really bad days. I hope the meds start working soon.
