Postpartum Depression is a type of depression that can occur in women who have recently given birth. It typically occurs in the first few months after delivery but can happen within the first year after giving birth. The symptoms are those seen with any major depressive episode. Often, postpartum depression interferes with the mother’s ability to bond with her newborn. It is very important to seek help if you are experiencing postpartum depression. Postpartum depression is different from the “Baby Blues” which tend to occur the first few days after delivery and resolve spontaneously.
Pregnancy is a time of major structural, physiological, psychological, spiritual and social changes. Some of the changes produce discomforts and concerns which can be addressed with appropriate therapy and body-use guidance.

Keeping a positive attitude is important as is feeling calm and relaxed. It’s totally understandable to sometimes have gloomy thoughts about being a mother because it is a lot of work. This is why it’s important to consider that you can be an excellent loving mother and sometimes feel resentful or ‘tied’ to your baby.
