A new study is shedding some light on indicators a woman may develop postpartum depression.
The research published in the Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology shows women who have trouble breastfeeding during the first few weeks end up with postpartum more often.
The studies' authors couldn't prove whether one was caused by the other.
But because of their findings, they recommend women who aren't breast-feeding successfully right away be screened for depression.
Women who report feelings of depression should be questioned about how breastfeeding is coming along.
