Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale (EPDS)

Details

Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale (EPDS)


The EPDS was designed to identify women who may have postpartum depression. At Naturopathic Pediatrics we recommend screening mothers at their child's 2 month and 6 month visits, with additional screenings for women who scored 8 or higher at 4 month and 12 month visits. Probable postpartum depression is 10 and higher.
