Yeah it does, but it's not a dead cert.  I've had several periods of depression but didn't get PND.  I did get a very,very bad case of the baby blues but that passed by 2weeks after the birth. Just try to make sure you have someone around you can rely on for emotional support (other than your husband/boyfriend who will be as sleep deprived and stressed out as you).

I had my baby 1st of December. I had Baby Blues too but it passed. I cried everyday for 2/3 weeks - no exaggeration. I was so terrified on getting PND but I didn't. So grateful. X

Here's some information from MedHelp.org on the two different kinds of depression that can happen after baby is born.

https://www.medhelp.org/pregnancy-health/articles/The-Baby-Blues-Signs-and-Symptoms/2038

https://www.medhelp.org/womens-health/articles/Could-You-Have-Postpartum-Depression/381

These will also pop up after your baby is born, in baby week 0 and baby week 2 of our I'm Expecting app.
