Default Correct answer E.

Postpartum psychosis is rare, occurring in less than 1% of new mothers and lasting up to one month after childbirth. Postpartum blues may occur in one third to one half of new mothers, and lasts up to one week. Intervention involves support and practical help with the child. Postpartum
depression occurs in 5%-10% of new mothers and is treated primarily with antidepressant
medication.
