A Closer Look: Postpartum Depression
Over 12 years ago, Carly Roberts came to town and blew the town of Port Charles sky-high when they all learned that she was the daughter of Barbara Jean Spencer and a John from back in the day. She then tore apart two families when it was learned that she conceived a child with either A.J. Quartermaine or Tony Jones in 1997. Once the baby was born, however, Jason Morgan claimed the child was his – the baby was fathered by his brother A.J. Soon afterward, Carly left town believing she harmed her child. Upon her return months later, she refused to touch the baby. It was revealed that Carly was going through postpartum depression, but not everyone was convinced – in particular one Robin Scorpio. On Thursday, January 15, look for Robin to have an unexpected reaction to her newborn baby girl. Fearing she is doing something wrong, Robin asks Elizabeth to watch over Emma. Afterward, she finds Jason and questions him on what things were like when Carly suffered from postpartum depression. On Friday, January 16, Robin is offended by Patrick’s medical suggestion.
