Post-Partum Depression

 

For every woman, having a baby is a challenging time, both physically and emotionally. It is natural for many new mothers to have mood swings after delivery, feeling joyful one minute and depressed the next. These feelings are sometimes known as the “baby blues”, and often go away within 10 days of delivery. However, some women may experience a deep and ongoing depression which lasts much longer. This is called postpartum depression. (2014 Canadian Mental Health Association) If you are experiencing feelings related to post partum depression such as despondency, tearfulness, feelings of inadequacy, guilt, anxiety, irritability and fatigue, we can help.
