|Women with diabetes are more likely to develop postnatal depression, a groundbreaking study has found.
Research carried out by experts at Harvard Medical School and the University Of Minnesota School Of Public Health, indicated that low-income mothers with diabetes have a 55 to 60 per cent increased risk of suffering from the postpartum condition.
According to the report, the higher risk of postnatal depression is similar for women being treated for diabetes before pregnancy and those who developed gestational diabetes.
