Well, the fact that you're wondering about it is already a good sign... it's probably most dangerous in women who have postpartum depression but don't know it yet.

The symptoms of many forms of depression can be similar; fatigue, loss of interest in otherwise pleasurable activities, significant changes in eating habits, anxiety, sleeping problems etc. The hormonal changes that come from having a baby are often charged with mood swings which are often experienced by new mothers. It seems that postpartum depression is often experienced by women who do not feel they have a substantial support network around to help them. If this is the case for you, it might be worth looking into some support groups, or just asking friends and family if they can be more available to help since you're experiencing some difficulties. Hope you find some more answers!
