Today's episode is about the diagnosis of postpartum psychosis. Here are some important questions we cover in this episode:

  • How common is postpartum psychosis?
  • What underlying etiology should we always suspect?
  • How do we differentiate postpartum psychosis from obsessive-compulsive disorder in the postpartum?
  • Is postpartum psychosis an emergency, or can it be handled with outpatient treatment?
