Women are regularly screened for postpartum depression at postnatal visits. However 10-50% of new mothers actually suffer from postpartum OCD which is often misdiagnosed as depression. Many mothers fear disclosing their symptoms due to their offensive nature. Although certain symptoms (i.e. cleanliness & safety) are appropriate during this period, many parents have trouble drawing the line to when it becomes maladaptive. Based on personal and professional experience, this panel will shed light on this neglected topic in a highly interactive dialogue, bringing together sufferers and clinicians.
