This is a serious, but rare, psychiatric illness, occurring in less than one in 1,000 births. It is similar in some ways to bipolar disorder. If you are diagnosed with this disorder, you may experience the following symptoms:
Is it the same as puerperal psychosis or postnatal psychosis?
Yes, postpartum, puerperal and postnatal are all just words for 'after childbirth'.
Is postpartum psychosis part of bipolar?
No, postpartum psychosis is a separate condition. However you are more likely to develop it if you have an existing diagnosis of bipolar, as Stacey does.
