You waited so long to meet your baby, and they’re finally here!
You’re probably feeling a mix of excitement and a little bit of anxiety. However, another feeling may come along and might be something that you’re not expecting at all––depression.
The “baby blues” is a milder and more common form of depression that can affect new mothers. Postpartum depression (PPD) is a more severe and debilitating condition that affects one in seven women.
Postpartum depression can cause new mothers to feel isolated, guilty, or ashamed. What is supposed to feel like a joyous, happy time can actually cause feelings of apathy, anxiety, and sadness.
Risks of untreated PPD include suicide, feeling unhappy in your marriage, and even problems in your baby’s development.
Over 50% of PPD cases go unrecognized and Brightside wants to work towards lowering that statistic.
