What is postpartum depression
Maybe it's the fact that your personal postpartum depression aligned with the so-called seasonal depression.The joys of this small, but there are effective ways of resistance and even fight.But first, we look at what's going on?
important to know that postpartum depression is a real medical term, and not just the definition of a bad mood.She "catches up" young mothers at any time of the year and it is quite understandable: affects fear for the life and health of a very small child, fear of not cope with the new responsibilities, own physical fatigue after pregnancy and childbirth.
Very often in the first few days or even hours after delivery Happy mother prone to mood swings.Impressionable person who experienced or wise friend told about the book is not a condition seriously considering that lose their sanity.
How so?The kid was born, our new life began, and I'm sad, not happy.And here's the thing: during pregnancy and childbirth in a woman's body produces large amounts of hormones, and now their level is sharply reduced, beginning to act other - promoting lactation (breast milk formulation) and recuperation after childbirth.
Postpartum depression "need", so that your body is finally able to disconnect from many days of hard work.In addition, it changes radically the motive of conduct and a woman's life: the climax for which passed the whole pregnancy and birth, came, the goal is achieved - the baby was born.
New challenges female body (contrary to our desires) are not able to solve siyusekundno, but only after some time.If pregnancy has not been for you a natural process of life expectancy, if sacrificed work and studies, relationships with close friends, family, hobbies, and entertainment, then you have little chance to attack postpartum depression.
A young mother, who for the first 9 months of happy defended her thesis, has found a new job for himself and a new school for the older child, swam in the pool and attended courses for expectant mothers on postpartum psychological problems, most likely, can not count.Seasonal depression

After around a biological (ie, animal and vegetable) world winter - time sleep, lull.The man also has to lead a normal active life.Add to that the winter session, in institutions, summarizing the results of the financial year in organizations or, as in your case, bearing and birth of the baby.
body physically exhausted (winter cold require large internal energy costs, and the lack of impact of natural vitamins), eager to break that does not occur.But there comes a kind of detached state when nothing wants to do and the most enjoyable pastime becomes lying on the couch and sad reflections on his unhappy fate.
Council on: postpartum depression. Do not be afraid of your bad temper and causeless melancholy, think of it as a natural "costs" of winter.Just try to wait out the depression, not doing anything with it.Mourn enough, yielding to his bad mood, feel really miserable, constantly complaining intimate girlfriends and her husband to her hard life, after warning them about their condition.
In quite rare cases, postpartum depression takes a somewhat different and of more dangerous for mother and baby form.If apathy, weakness and unwillingness to do anything, not only for themselves but also for their newborn baby (this is the most unpleasant!) Delayed for a few weeks if the disappearing sense of being wanted, of responsibility for the child, therefore, needed a psychologist or a neuropsychiatrist.
By the way, psychologists believe the appearance of aggressiveness and excitement over good sign out of postpartum depression.They began to throw in young dad diapers and nipples?Hooray, postpartum depression end!
