What is postpartum depression?

Bringing a child into this world is an impactful change not only to your life but to your body. The experience can bring on a realm of emotions ranging from excitement and joy to fear and anxiety. It’s natural to experience some sadness and anxiety in the first few weeks after childbirth. If these feelings become overwhelming and persist beyond the first few weeks, you may be experiencing postpartum depression (PPD). Between 6.5-20% of women will develop PPD. If untreated, PPD could last for months or longer and affect the development of your child.

Common Symptoms

Postpartum depression can look and feel different for everyone. Common signs and symptoms include:

• Depressed mood or severe mood swings
• Excessive crying
• Difficulty bonding with your baby
• Withdrawing from family and friends
• Loss of appetite or eating much more than usual
• Inability to sleep (insomnia) or sleeping too much
