What is postpartum depression (PPD)?

Postpartum depression (PPD) is a form of depression that occurs in connection with having a child and affects approximately 15% of women who give birth. The onset of postpartum depression can occur during pregnancy or within the first year of childbirth. The depressive symptoms include low mood and sadness, a loss of interest or pleasure in activities (sometimes in the new baby), changed appetite, sleep disturbance (not caused by the baby), strong feelings of guilt and shame, and sometimes thinking about harming oneself or the baby. Usually, the first depressive symptoms appear during delivery or 6-8 weeks afterwards.

This article tells you all about the early signs of PPD, how it’s different from the ‘baby blues’ and what to do to manage it: What is postpartum depression (PPD)?
