Likelihood of getting PPD with a 2nd if I had it with my first???

I had postpartum depression with my son... We are thinking of trying again for another child soon. And I was wondering how likely it is to have it again since I had it before.

  • I got it with #2 & #3 too.
    by #3 though, I did tell my OB about the history and she made sure I left the hospital with my antidepressant Rx.

  • I didn't get it with my 2nd. My doctors knew that I had it with my 1st, but thankfully I didn't get it after her! My mom and sister both had PPD and they never got it with the 2nd either.
