Letters: Postpartum, Obamacare effect

Wednesday, 3/19/2014

Postpartum psychosis is characterized by delusions and hallucinations that can result in killing one's self and/ or one's children. It is more severe than postpartum depression- occurring only once or twice for every 1,000 deliveries but often arises suddenly with tragic effect. It is complicated by lack of social support, insomnia, exhaustion and poverty. Unfortunately, postpartum psychosis is not diagnosed until after a tragedy occurs.
