Hi, Sanjay!! All of the SSRI class antidepressants, including escitalopram, work quite well for post partum depression, but if taking Lexapro Mom CANNOT breast feed the little one.
Your best course if the problem arises would be to speak with your OB/GYN and/or psychiatrist.
Best wishes and congratulations! WCV
