General Postpartum Depression Information
Postpartum depression is a mix of physical, behavioral and emotional changes that take place after childbirth. Postpartum depression most commonly occurs in the first few days following the birth of a child and usually lasts just a day or two. Unexpected weeping, uncontrollable appetite, sudden flares of temper and nightmares are common. In more severe cases, extreme mood swings, hallucinations, thoughts of suicide and harmful thoughts toward the baby are possible.

Possible Causes of Postpartum Depression
Postpartum depression is caused by the chemical, social and psychological changes that occur after childbirth. The rapid drop in hormones after delivery can also lead to postpartum depression. Add this to the overwhelming feeling of responsibility associated with a new baby, and it is no wonder many new mothers experience feelings of sadness and anxiety. Those with a history of depression are more apt to develop postpartum depression. Marital conflict, living alone, little social support and additional children increase the risk of a new mother experiencing postpartum depression.

Possible Symptoms of Postpartum Depression
There are three types of postpartum depression, each with its own list of symptoms:

Postpartum Blues, which affects 50% to 75% of all new mothers, is the most mild form of postpartum depression. The “baby blues” is characterized by frequent bouts of crying for no known reason, sadness and anxiety. These symptoms usually appear during the first one to four days after delivery and fade within two-weeks’ time.

Postpartum Depression, which affects one in 10 new mothers, is more serious than the blues in that the symptoms are more pronounced and last longer. Symptoms include drastic “highs” and “lows”, crying, fatigue and irritability. Feelings of sadness, despair and the inability to care for herself or the baby is also prevalent. Symptoms range from mild to severe and can last anywhere from one month to one year.

Postpartum Psychosis is relatively rare, affecting only one in 1000 new mothers, but it is very serious and requires emergency medical treatment. Symptoms usually appear very quickly after delivery and can last for several months. Helplessness, hopelessness, shame, severe agitation, insomnia, paranoia, hyperactivity and mania are characteristic of postpartum psychosis.

Possible Lifestyle Changes for Postpartum Depression
Breast feeding is the most natural and effective way to prevent postpartum depression because it increases endorphin levels. It also helps to be realistic about your expectations of yourself and the baby. Limit visitors. Ask for help. Sleep when the baby sleeps and try to work in daily exercise. Eat a healthful diet and drink plenty of water. Avoid isolating yourself and the baby. Cultivate the relationship between you and your partner.
