Fourth Trimester

Roughly the first 12 weeks after your baby is born. This is a period of transition, the time of recovery, settling into, and adjusting to, having a new baby at home. Interestingly, male postnatal depression will often occur at the end of, or slightly after, this trimester between 3 and 4 months postpartum.
