Postpartum psychosis is a rare disorder occurring in about one woman in a thousand following childbirth. It generally takes the form of mania, severe depression (with delusions, confusion, or stupor), or acute cycloid psychosis. It does not overlap completely with bipolar mood disorder, although there is evidence of a link between the two, especially as the majority of patients presenting with a severe postpartum psychiatric disorder appear to have a cycloid psychosis. It has been proposed that PP may be one of a spectrum of bipolar disorders. In susceptible women, childbirth, abortion, and even menstruation can trigger bipolar episodes.
