ABSTRACT
This article discusses a study on the prevalence of self-reported postpartum depressive symptoms (PDS) in the U.S. from 2004 to 2005. The study found that PDS is associated with maternal age, marital status, maternal education, and Medicaid coverage. It also observed an association between race/ethnicity and PDS, with non-Hispanic white women having a lower prevalence of PDS compared with women of other racial/ethnic groups.
