Postpartum emotional disorders generally fall into one of three categories: "blues," depressions, or psychoses. Such postpartum syndromes are described as to their presenting symptomatology, phenomenology, treatment, and prognosis. The role of the appropriate use of psychotropic medication in these conditions, after proper diagnosis, is also discussed. This overview is meant to be helpful to consultation-liaison psychiatrists and to other psychiatrists who work closely with obstetricians and primary care physicians.
