Talking to your doctor is a big step. We get it but they truly are there to help. Not speaking up about your questions and concerns makes it harder for them to help you. Here are some helpful things to help them help you.
The Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale (EPDS)
The EPDS is a 10-question self-administered screening tool used worldwide that helps to recognize women who might be suffering from postpartum depression.
You can download a copy of it right here.
You can fill out this screening tool and print it out to share with your healthcare provider. Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns after filling out the EPDS.
