According to my English dictionary, it is gramatically wrong to say "It is common that a woman feels depressed after giving birth". It seems I must say "It is common for a woman to feel depressed". Why can't we use "common" with that-clause ? I beg you to help me.

Which dictionary? 'It is common that' seems much less common to me than 'it is common for', but I see no grammatical error.

Here are the 3 examples (only a small number) from the American Corpus:

It is common that collaboration partners, such as vendors in SSC's case, build their databases....
It is common that medical centers have a significant number of hospitalized patients receiving potentially ototoxic medication...
Yes. It is common that parents are unaware that their children may be doing this....
Thanks a billion for your help. Actually, I teach English in Japan and one of my students asked me about this. I will ask her which dictionary. I'm sure it's one made in Japan.

CGE 837 It is common that learned attitudes and behaviour patterns may never be questioned by the grown-up child.�
J6S 1274 Nevertheless, it is common that preference shares with a right to a cumulative dividend obtain voting rights if the dividend is in arrears for a specified period.

These are the two results from the BNC, I don't think it's a very common collocation, I would expect to see "it is common for".
Thank you so much for your help. I'm totally satisfied to know it is gramatically correct.
I think that "It is common for" is generally by an expression with an infinitive, such as your example: It is common for women to be depressed....

"It is common that" can be followed by a non-infinitive expression, such as: It is common that women feel depressed....
