Katie Monarch, a licensed clinical social worker, explains how long postpartum depression/PPD lasts and how a woman can rid herself from the symptoms in the quickest manner.
Katie L. Monarch:
Postpartum depression can last anywhere from a couple of weeks up to a year, and some of the statistics indicate also, that year time frame, it can reoccur. What we have found is that if a mom gets treatment, she gets better quicker, and that’s the beauty of having a postpartum depression program in the fact that they do have a place to come. They are able to get treatment and they get better quicker.
