Postpartum anemia (PPA) and Postpartum depression (PPD) are common afflictions affecting women after childbirth. Both disorders have a significant impact on women's health and functional status. Despite common symptoms and characteristics, a link between these entities has not been adequately studied. The objective of this study is to determine whether postpartum anemia is an independent risk factor for the development of postpartum depression. This prospective cohort study will include all women delivered by elective term cesarean delivery. Hemoglobin and iron levels will be measured, standardized questionnaires for assessment of PPD, functional status and lactation will be administered before discharge and at 3 & 6 weeks post partum. Hemoglobin levels at each time point will be analyzed for correlation with depressive symptoms, functional status and lactation success.

Depression in POSTPARTUM WOMEN, usually within four weeks after giving birth (PARTURITION). The degree of depression ranges from mild transient depression to neurotic or psychotic depressive disorders. (From DSM-IV, p386)
Transient autoimmune thyroiditis occurring in the POSTPARTUM PERIOD. It is characterized by the presence of high titers of AUTOANTIBODIES against THYROID PEROXIDASE and THYROGLOBULIN. Clinical signs include the triphasic thyroid hormone pattern: beginning with THYROTOXICOSIS, followed with HYPOTHYROIDISM, then return to euthyroid state by 1 year postpartum.
Decompression external to the body, most often the slow lessening of external pressure on the whole body (especially in caisson workers, deep sea divers, and persons who ascend to great heights) to prevent DECOMPRESSION SICKNESS. It includes also sudden accidental decompression, but not surgical (local) decompression or decompression applied through body openings.
Excess blood loss from uterine bleeding associated with OBSTETRIC LABOR or CHILDBIRTH. It is defined as blood loss greater than 500 ml or of the amount that adversely affects the maternal physiology, such as BLOOD PRESSURE and HEMATOCRIT. Postpartum hemorrhage is divided into two categories, immediate (within first 24 hours after birth) or delayed (after 24 hours postpartum).
Depressive states usually of moderate intensity in contrast with major depression present in neurotic and psychotic disorders.
