Dear lybrate-user, Postpartum depression resolves by itself after few months. One need to know the severity if depression to plan treatment. In severe suicidal women, we need to give electroconvulsive therapy. In moderate severity, you can take fluvoxin tablets for few months. In your case, if it is only negative thoughts and not suicidal planning, you can opt for cognitive therapy to question and challenge the negative automatic thoughts. It will be 18-20 weekly therapy sessions.
