Learn to handle it to fully enjoy motherhood. How do I identify and overcome it? Then.

That your baby enjoys good health depends largely on feeding during pregnancy. Find detailed nutrition information that you should carry during this important stage.

Many women after childbirth experience changes in mood. Periods of irritability, fatigue, unconscious crying, loss of appetite, difficulty in falling asleep and increased susceptibility occur.

If these symptoms appear between three and five days postpartum, there is no cause for concern: the woman goes through a mild postpartum depression that with much support from her partner and company can conclude promptly. This is considered among gynecologists as a common mischief for first-time mothers due to fears and insecurity in handling their responsibility as a mom. It can last for hours or days, but when it does, it is best to see a doctor.

Hormonal changes are large and can generate certain disorders in the maternal organism that originate these mood states, as they can affect the emotions and hormones that provide the feeling of optimism, such as serotonin. If we add to this the interrupted sleep (the baby does not sleep hard all night and wake the new mom), the physiological wastage that represents breastfeeding and the change of pace of life, it is easy to determine why this disorder is so common .

A woman is more likely to experience postpartum depression if she had anxiety disorders before pregnancy, has a close relative who has experienced depression or anxiety, something stressful occurred during pregnancy, including illness, death or illness of a loved one, a Difficult, emergency, premature, or an illness or anomaly of the baby; Is less than 20 years old, not planned or unwanted pregnancy, consumes alcohol, hallucinogens or smokes; Have little support from family, friends or a loved one; Has bad relationship or is not married, previously attempted suicide, has financial problems or received little support from her parents in childhood.

Postpartum depression syndrome can happen; The key is to become aware of it. Knowing that it exists, is not something that happens to a particular woman.

It is important to talk about it in a couple, with some other woman who has had a recent birth or with friends who listen to you. That is, having a supportive environment and also have a good professional support, in addition to trying to start or continue with an activity.

Hide your state of depression, lock yourself and not share it, many times through ignorance or shame of what they will say, disguises the situation and causes the syndrome to settle in the unconscious and when time passes and you think that everything returned to normal, when You least expect it, it appears with all the forces.


In addition to depressed mood, the mother may present the following symptoms almost every day:

  • Negative feelings towards the baby.
  • Lack of pleasure in all or most activities.
  • Decreased appetite.
  • Loss of energy.
  • Feelings of withdrawal, social isolation or disconnection.
  • Feelings of worthlessness or guilt. Difficulty to sleep.
  • Difficulty concentrating or thinking.
  • Thoughts of death or suicide.

Diagnosis and treatment

There is no single test to diagnose postpartum depression. Your doctor may ask you to fill out a questionnaire to look for signs of depression or risk for this disease. Sometimes, postpartum depression may be related to health disorders such as hypothyroidism.

Treatment often includes medications, therapy or the combination of both. If a mother is thinking about hurting herself or the baby, she should seek medical help right away.

Once the depression is diagnosed, the mother needs meticulous follow-up for at least six months. Participation in support groups can be valuable, but it must be supported with medication and formal psychotherapy.

If left untreated, postpartum depression can last for months or years and the mother may be at risk of hurting herself or her child.

Medications and professional counseling are often effective in reducing or eliminating symptoms.
