The questionnaire below is called the Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale. If you would like to fill it out, it will help you recognize some of the changes you may be experiencing. This questionnaire will not diagnose you, but you may want to speak with a health care provider about the results.
To maintain your confidentiality your answers to the questionnaire are not stored and will only be seen by you.
As you have recently had a baby, we would like to know how you are feeling. Please check the answer that comes closest to how you have felt IN THE PAST 7 DAYS, not just how you feel today.
Here is an example, already completed:
This would mean: “I have felt happy most of the time” during the past week. Please complete the other questions in the same way.
