I'm an adoptive mother. Although I'm sure that post-pregnancy hormones play a huge role in PPD, I suffered a mild depression, too. The circumstances ( reaching the long-sought goal, staying home from work, sleep deprivations, suddenly not being the center of attention, self-doubt about maternal ability, etc.) seemed to play a big role for me. And second, can the circumstances trigger hormones that create the depressive effect? Thanks.
