Postpartum Depression and Its Symptoms
Having a baby is an emotional experience that can trigger many feelings, both positive and negative. This can last for a short period of time – not unusual given the significance of having a new baby in the family. This has come to be known as ‘baby blues’. However, some new moms may be affected by what is known as postpartum depression, which is a condition defined by longer-lasting depression that is triggered after childbirth.
The Symptoms of Postpartum Depression
The signs and symptoms can be more severe in effect than baby blues. They can include:
- Mood swings that range in severity
- Loss of appetite
- Lack of energy and interest in activities or chores
- Sleep disruptions
- Loss of energy
- Thoughts of harm towards self, and/or others
Treating Postpartum Depression
Postpartum depression can become very serious and last for extended periods of time if not identified and treated.
