There can be a whirlwind of new emotions with the birth of a child. It’s a common occurrence for new parents to experience postpartum “baby blues” after childbirth. It can typically begin within the first few days after delivery, and could last for up to two weeks. If symptoms continue or become more intense after two weeks, a conversation about Postpartum depression(PPD) may be considered. If untreated, PPD may last for months or longer and affect the development of your child. Continue reading below and see if scheduling a telemedicine consultation is right for you.
