It looks like postpartum depression legislation has been introduced in the state of Maine to make PPD screenings mandatory at 6-weeks post birth and to require doctors to educate women on postpartum depression during their pregnancy. The bill (LD 792, An Act Concerning Postpartum Mental Health Education) is sponsored by state Senator Nancy Sullivan (D). On Feb. 15 it was referred to the Maine Senate's Committee on Health and Human Services. Ladies in Maine, contact your local representatives to get this passed!!
