Does anyone know what might be the contributing factors are in ppd? I have heard br___tfeeding, whether you went c or va___ally, drugs used during childbirth, of course family history would be a big one. Anyone have any insight? Thanks in advance.

Those things can contribute to having different feelings after giving birth, but I think one of the main causes of ppd is all the hormones bouncing back and forth after giving birth. Nine months of having these hormones and then giving birth-it is like your hormone levels crashing. They are trying to find that normal level again. It can cause real havok for some women-I was real paranoid that something bad was going to happen to someone I loved at any given moment...it went away after a few months. Those issues can bring about feelings that can be intensified by ppd, but I don't think that any one of those factors actually cause ppd...but I could be wrong...
