Test-retest reliability of the English version of the Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale (EPDS) has not been established. This study aimed to address this gap in psychometrics by examining test-retest reliability in a sample of 118 Australian mothers with babies aged under 12 months, with a mean of 2.82 (SD 1.38) days between test occasions. The EPDS was found to have a high level of test-retest reliability for total scores (ICC = 0.92) and PND risk categories (90.7 % agreement).
