Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale

Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale
This screening tool is very well researched for both postnatal and prenatal use.
It is recommended you use it twice during your pregnancy and at 6 weeks, 12 weeks and 6 months postpartum.
Please note that while this is an excellent screening tool, it is not a diagnostic tool.
If your score is higher than 13 or if you respond positively to question 10 it is highly recommended you seek professional help from a mental health professional.
If in doubt always consult your family Dr for a referral.
