How To Deal With Postpartum Depression?




Postpartum depression or depression after the delivery is a clinical condition that affects many women and even some men. The person may experience sad, anxious and empty feelings which hinder day to day activities.

The symptoms of postpartum depression includes feeling restless, sad, a tendency to cry a lot, no motivation, increased or reduced eating habits. The person either sleeps a lot or sleeps very little and loses interest in the things they once enjoyed.

New mothers suffering from postpartum depression may feel like hurting the baby, hurting themselves and does not have any interest in the newborn. The condition may be due to hormonal changes, childcare stress and marital problems it is difficult to pinpoint the exact reason.

So how would you cope with postpartum depression?
It is wise to share your feelings with friends, partner and family. Tell your doctor how you feel it is nothing wrong about the way you feel. People will be more than ready to help you out if you seek help.

Rest properly, the first advise I would give is that sleep while the baby is asleep and do the entire house work later. Switch off the ringer and even the calling bell because some kind and curious soul will want to visit you and your baby when every nerve of yours yells for rest. Remember I am talking from experience being a mother of two kids.

Do not be too hard on yourself, slow down, spend time with your partner, venture out and join a support group. The good news is that it is a passing phase depression can be treated through talk therapy and medication. If you are breast feeding, talk to your doctor about it.

Remember everything will be fine and soon you will enjoy the lovely days with your bundle of joy.
