  Postnatal depression – Causes
 
What causes postnatal depression?

The simple answer is we don't know. It is likely that a number of factors are involved. The illness may arise partly because of the hormonal changes following childbirth. The stress of looking after a young baby and having your sleep disrupted may also help to bring on the illness in susceptible people.
