Postpartum Depression- PPD
The arrival of a baby may cause a storm of strong feelings, from exuberance to terror and dread. However, it can also lead to something you never anticipated: depression.
After childbirth, many new moms experience the “baby blues,” which include mood fluctuations, crying fits, anxiety, and difficulty sleeping. Baby blues typically start within the first two to three days after birth and may last for up to two weeks.
Some new mothers, on the other hand, suffer from a more severe, long-term type of sadness known as postpartum depression. Occasionally, after childbirth, an extremely severe mood disease called postpartum psychosis may occur.
Postpartum depression isn’t a stigma or an inability. It’s possible that it’s simply the result of giving birth. If you have postpartum depression, getting treatment as soon as possible is critical to managing your symptoms and forming a relationship with your child.
