Depression Screening Results

Edinburgh Post Natal Depression Scale Results

Individual postpartum depression screening answers are scored according to the key below. 

If you have a score of 10 or greater this is indication that you likely have postpartum depression, however, it does not indicate the severity of your depression. 

Please keep in mind that the Edinburgh Post Natal Depression Scale is designed as a tool to assist you and should not replace the advice of your doctor.

Consider taking this test from time to time or whenever you suspect you might have any of the symptoms listed in the quiz.

Taking the quiz on your own is particularly helpful if you feel embarrassed to admit to your symptoms until you have some evidence that you likely do have postpartum depression. 

For each answer, give yourself the following points:

Question 1.
a. 0

Testimonials

"No mother has to suffer from PPD needlessly. This is a fact. But until you know what you're up against, you'll still be trapped - without knowing why! A typical example is the common misconception that depression is "all just in the mind." Your first step is to keep an open mind; and allow Laura to take you by the hand and guide you step by step through the PPD universe. Using a "wellness" approach, and with her usual friendly and informative style, trust me, she can help you help yourself getting out of the rut - naturally - in no time."

- Naturopath Alex Leong, B.A.S.M.

“Laura realizes the interconnections between mind, body, and spirit and offers down-to-earth,  practical guidelines in harmonizing them.”

- Karen Szillat, Early Childhood Educator and Peace Advocate Author of Empowering The Children:  12 Universal Values Your Child Must Learn to Succeed In Life

“I wish I had had this valuable book after my baby was born.  Fantastic information!”

"I just want to say in my capacity as pediatrician, teacher of pediatrics, and medical journalist, how very impressed I am by your website. I think your site is very thoughtful, not at all doctrinaire, and will be very valuable to mothers (and I think fathers, too in a second-hand sort of way) suffering from a variety of postpartum problems, of which the most common and perhaps the most serious is PPD. Anyway, thank you for your site, which I will certainly pass on to mothers in my practice."

Sydney Z. Spiesel, Ph DMD Clinical Professor of Pediatrics, Yale University School of Medicine
