Why are doctors missing mental health problems in new mums?

Why are doctors missing mental health problems in new mums?
- Erin Shaw, a mother who experienced undiagnosed postnatal depression for over two years and eventually took an overdose, said: “The doctor didn’t have the time to talk to me properly at my six-week check and my feelings were just dismissed as ‘normal’ for new mums, but they weren't normal.
“No one even mentioned postnatal depression. It was only when I ended up taking an overdose that someone finally listened to me.”
