Life with a new baby can be a major transition. With the major changes in hormones and adjusting to a new family routine, it can bring about increased anxiety, depression, and in some cases psychosis. Postpartum symptoms can vary with each pregnancy but, generally speaking, there is an increased chance of experiencing postpartum symptoms if you've had them in the past.
Postpartum symptoms include:
Sadness that is more than the usual baby blues
Increased worry to include irrational thoughts
Postpartum symptoms may look like the typical changes one experiences as your hormones normalize but its important to be mindful of what you are experiencing. Symptoms will not always come right after delivery, in some cases symptoms appear well after the baby is born.
Untreated Postpartum symptoms can negatively effect how you bond with your child, how you respond to your loved ones as they support you, and your overall health as you transition to having a new child in the home.
