Hiya - does anyone know the latest statistics on postnatal depression and/or stats for how many mums are on anti-d's? Been trying to locate on the web but not having much joy. Thanks.

I believe the official figure for PND is 1 in 10, but unofficially it's thought to be nearer 1 in 5 (pretty sure I read that in The Observer article - there was a link to it on a thread on here a couple of weeks ago. No idea about anti-ds' sorry.
