I guess that by "mommy depression" you mean PND, Post-Natal Depression ? It can come on quite variably, at different times after pregnancy and childbirth. Having a baby and dealing with the chores and disturbed sleep is exhausting in itself, even without an actual epression.
A shrink ( and a really good GP ) can do a proper assessment and iodentify if this diagnosis is present, and discuss your treatment options.
Fortunately, PND responds really well to proper treatment, which may include medication and/or CBT style counselling.
