If you are pregnant or have been pregnant in the past year, this screening tool is used to assess how you are feeling. Please check the answer that comes closest to how you have felt in the past seven days, not just how you feel today. Your responses will remain confidential.

Please complete the other questions in the same way. The EPDS is not intended to make a diagnosis of clinical depression. An accurate diagnosis for depression and other psychiatric disorders can only be made by a qualified medical or mental health professional after a complete evaluation, including a physical exam to rule out any medical illnesses or conditions.

Your responses to these questions are strictly confidential.
