Postpartum depression, or widely known as “baby blues,” is commonly found in new mothers. They may feel a combination of sadness, anxiety, and fatigue after they gave birth to their newborns.
Unfortunately, society’s stigmas and pressures about postpartum depression, which force mothers to be strong, often leave them feeling ashamed.
Those stigmas and pressures can also make it harder for a new mother to admit and accept this condition.
It only takes a few weeks for some mothers before they get back to their normal condition. Others, on the other hand, may have to deal with postpartum depression for a longer time.
We have met women with different baby blues stories. Some of them had to go to therapy to deal with it. Another has to take anti-depressants after giving birth to be able to function properly in her daily life.
We just want to let you know that no matter whatever kind of baby blues you’re struggling with right now, it really doesn’t make you a terrible parent. And remember, you can always ask for help from fellow mothers.
More importantly, there’s nothing to be ashamed of in asking for professional help. Whatever happens, your mental and physical health should always be the number one priority here.
