Postpartum Depression

Having a baby can be one of the happiest and most important events in a woman's life. While life with a new baby can be thrilling and rewarding, it can also be hard and stressful at times. May physical and emotional changes can happen to a woman when she is pregnant and after she gives birth. These changes can leave new mothers feeling sad, anxious, afraid, or confused. For many women, these feelings go away quickly, usually 10 days after delivers, and may be part of a normal experience called the Baby Blues. But, when these feelings linger or get worse, a woman may have what is called Postpartum Depression (PPD). This condition should be treated just as you would any other illness - by seeking help from a physician or a qualified mental health provider. Remember, any woman can develop PPD during or after pregnancy. It is nothing to be ashamed of.
