Um, baby blues and postpartum depression are one and the same. They usually tend to not want anything to do with their kid after it’s born. I would think the latter is more liable to act in an irrational manner and hurt a child. The reason being is in psychosis they tend to get delusions and hallucinations, including auditory hallucinations which could tell them to kill.

I would think either could be criminal defense, assuming the person had a history of psych illness to back it up. Mainly bipolar or schizophrenia patients.
