Typically, a psychiatrist will want to prescribe you meds. But a psychologist or counselor/therapist will want to do talk therapy with you. In my experience, it is generally helpful to get a referral to a psychologist who specializes in postpartum mood issues. That psychologist can help you find a psychiatrist or work with your main doctor to get you the right prescriptions, should you need any.
