Do you have postnatal (or perinatal) depression?
Expecting and getting a child should be one of the happiest times of your life, so why do you feel anything but? Fill in our quiz to see whether you're suffering from depression.
The Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale (EPDS) is a 10-item questionnaire that was developed to identify women who have postnatal depression. It can also be used to screen for depression during pregnancy.
Tick the option that is the closest to how you've felt in the past 7 days. The total score is calculated by adding together points for each answer you ticked. The higher the score, the more likely it is that you are distressed and may be depressed.
