Your Answer to Postpartum Depression

April 17, 2019 by admin0

It is true that motherhood brings unlimited joy. It is also true that motherhood opens up a can of emotions. Many of these emotions are positive, but not all of them. Every new mother experiences feelings that tell them that they are not really prepared for motherhood. They are worried that they will not be able to do whatever is necessary for their child. They are also anxious about the well being of the child and if they will be able to provide the necessary care and nurture.

New mothers also feel a little sidelined because the entire focus of the family is on the child. During pregnancy, women are treated in a very special manner by the family and after the child is born, the attention of the family naturally shifts a little toward the baby, making the new mother feel sidetracked. Also, in this day and age, new mothers are worried about their careers and when they can get back to work. They are concerned how the maternity gap will affect their professional life.

In this cauldron of emotions, new mothers feel depressed and stressed out, a state which is technically called postpartum depression. While a major part of this state is caused by emotional and social reasons, the physical exhaustion of child delivery and the hormonal imbalance caused due to it also contribute to these feelings of depression. During this phase, women can get mood swings, or become particularly irritable. Sometimes, they are unable to take good care of the newborn because of their own mental condition.

Postpartum depression is a natural state of mind, feel many psychologists. However, if these feelings persist for over a period of time, affecting your normal life and relationships, you should see a trained and professional psychologist. More often than not, individual sessions with a psychologist are all that is required. Talking and expressing bottled up emotions can act as a safety valve. If the psychologist feels so, you can work in groups with new mothers facing the same kind of problem.

All you need to know is that you should not ignore these feelings. You should also not allow anyone to tell you that they will go away on their own, if they have been around for some time. Get your session booked at and live a better life with your newborn.
