Despite the extensive history of studies of puerperal psychological disorders, more precisely postpartum psychosis, there is currently no consensus on its aetiology or nosography. The aim of this article is to perform a historical and clinical review of the debate on the diagnosis, aetiology, and interpretation of acute psychosis breakdown triggered during the puerperal period, in order to provide a general panorama of this pathology; a pathology that is gaining more and more interest in psychiatry, psychology, and gynaecology.
