Recent articles on counseling news
discuss postpartum and postnatal depression.  Postnatal refers to an infant
immediately following birth whereas postpartum refers to the period after birth. 
Postnatal would be similar to neonatal.  From this we can conclude that the
term postnatal is probably inappropriate in these articles, since presumably the
infant is not depressed.
