Postpartum Depression In Women With Low Anti-Anxiety Hormone

Postpartum depression is a type of clinical depression which can affect women after childbirth. This condition affects the early bonding between the mother and child. If postpartum depression is untreated, it may have potentially devastating and even lethal consequences for both. Women previously diagnosed with mood disorders are at higher risk of developing postpartum depression if they have lower levels of the hormone allopregnanolone during the second trimester of pregnancy.
