Major Depressive Disorder, Severe, with Peripartum Onset

Mrs. Tilman recently gave birth to her first child and has come to see the doctor. She is upset that she is not experiencing the normal feelings of motherhood. At times she cannot hold or feed her daughter and often regrets becoming a mother. Each of these feelings in turn create an intense sense of guilt and remorse that has led to lack of sleep, a deteriorating relationship with her husband, and her inability to work or socialize.
