The Edinburgh Post Natal Depression Scale (EPDS)
(J.L. Cox, J.M. Holden, R. Sagovsky, Department of Psychiatry, University of Edinburgh)
Please note: The EPDS is only a screening tool. It does not diagnose depression. Diagnosis can only be done by a licensed healthcare professional.
If you feel that you might be suffering from perinatal depression, it could be helpful to complete this interactive quiz and share the results with your health care provider.
Instructions: Please select the answer which comes closest to how you have felt in the past 7 days – not just how you feel today.
Here is an example, already completed:
- I have felt happy:
- Yes, all the time
- Yes, most of the time
- No, not very often
- No, not at all
This would mean “I have felt happy most of the time during the past week.”
