    I have suffered with depression most of my life. The depressioned seemed to lift quite a bit during pregnancy - although still had some really down times.

    How do I know whether I have pnd or its just my usual depression?

    Im not too sure to be honest, My first doctor had said she thinks i was more likely to have PND but since then with a new doctor its not PND just regular depression.

    I think it depends on the reasons your down? Im not so sure.. the doctor will know?
