I have 6 children and #& on the way. I have had all vaginal births and anticipate this one being the same. I get PPD ALWAYS after having my babies. I don't think the c-sections have anything to do w/ it. They say it's really about hormones. They don't know why some women get it and some don't. I imagine it is much like morning sickness or anything else pregnancy related. Some women get certain symptoms and others don't, but I really don't think having a c-section has anything to do with it. I have several friends that have had c-sections and not suffered from PPD.
You may want to speak w/ your doctor though. He/she can prescribe anti-depressants and give you other suggestions. Take care!
