Depression is common in the postnatal period and can lead to adverse effects on the infant and wider family, in addition to the morbidity for the mother.

11. Depression - antenatal and postnatal

Depression - antenatal and postnatal Depression - antenatal and postnatal - NICE CKS Share Depression - antenatal and postnatal: Summary Depression refers to a spectrum of mental health problems characterized by the absence of positive affect (that is a loss of interest and enjoyment in ordinary things and experiences), low mood, and additional emotional, cognitive, physical, and behavioural symptoms. Women who are pregnant or postnatal can develop or have the same mental health problems (...) as other adults. Depression in the postnatal period can occur at any time within a year after birth. Common misconceptions about depression in the postnatal period are that symptoms and effects are less severe than depression at other times, it will go away by itself, and that it is entirely due to hormonal changes. The possibility of depression should be assessed at a pregnant woman's first contact with primary care, at her booking visit, and postnatally. The usual diagnostic criteria for depression

18. Paternal depression in the postnatal period and child development: a prospective population study. (PubMed)

Paternal depression in the postnatal period and child development: a prospective population study. Depression is common and frequently affects mothers and fathers of young children. Postnatal depression in mothers affects the quality of maternal care, and can lead to disturbances in their children's social, behavioural, cognitive, and physical development. However, the effect of depression in fathers during the early years of a child's life has received little attention.As part of a large (...) , population-based study of childhood, we assessed the presence of depressive symptoms in mothers (n=13,351) and fathers (n=12,884) 8 weeks after the birth of their child with the Edinburgh postnatal depression scale (EPDS). Fathers were reassessed at 21 months. We identified any subsequent development of behavioural and emotional problems in their children (n=10,024) at age 3.5 years with maternal reports on the Rutter revised preschool scales.Information was available for 8431 fathers, 11,833 mothers
