Background: For more than 150 years, controversy over the status of post-partum psychosis has hindered research and caused considerable confusion for clinicians and women, with potentially negative consequences. We aimed to explore the hypothesis that genetic vulnerability differs between women with first-onset post-partum psychosis and those with bipolar disorder more generally.
