Depression – baby blues or something more serious
Nearly half of all women experience some degree of depression (“baby blues”) after delivery. Baby blues usually begin a few days after delivery and can last up to two weeks. Symptoms often improve with simple measures such as eating healthy, sleeping more and obtaining support from family and friends.
Postpartum depression is much more serious and up to 15 percent of women experience it during the postpartum period. It usually begins during the first month after delivery, but can occur anytime during the first two years after delivery. Treatment may include support groups, psychiatric counseling and antidepressant medications.
