Perinatal/ Postpartum Depression

Women experience several emotional, biological, and behavioral changes during pregnancy and after giving birth.Pregnant or new mother often find themselves anxious, teary, nervous, or overwhelmed but if it lasts over a long period of time they might need treatment. A wide variety of feelings ranging from excitement to stress affects the mental health of women during pregnancy.

The emotional connection between mother and child is the strongest of all relationships, how a child perceives wordless relationship with mother not only influences the way of life-long interaction, contact, and relationship with others, but also makes him feel comfortable enough for further development. Weeping or laughing are child's signs with respect to their particular needs and should be listened to regularly and warmly. Postpartum depression can significantly interrupt that bonding.

Depressed females may respond negatively or do not respond to their child at all, they may be inconsistent when showing the newborns love and affection. Learning to bond with children makes a woman feel happier and more comfortable when releasing vital hormones. It is common in this modern world to feel tired, or lonely, when raising a newborn child or coping with pregnancy-related problems that render women even more vulnerable. Through this time it is important to remain more than ever connected with friends and family, even if you prefer to stay alone rather than dealing with some toxic relatives. Not only can they provide the emotional connection they need, but they can also provide important practical support. As long as the person is willing to judge reassurance, or provide support, it is advisable not to worry too much about the role that the particular person plays in your life. Consider meeting new mothers with common changes by joining groups or organizations of support.

Simple lifestyle changes that allow you to focus more on yourself and your baby, do yoga and exercises, take plenty of sleep and pamper yourself can be particularly effective. The needs and demands of taking care of a new baby will affect your relationship with your partner in life, which often takes equal time and attention and in the worst case will lead to disagreements and even divorce. For treatment, many sleepless nights could leave women feeling stressed and tired, which may affect their relationship with partner as well. Talking to your partner about your stress can give them an understanding of how you feel. Take some time out with your partner to spend some quality moments together for reconnecting with them. Often frightening ideas and thoughts can get trapped in the brain, and for a long time terrorize you. Keeping optimistic thoughts in mind and meeting happy people during pregnancy is recommendable.
