Living with Postpartum Depression

Postpartum depression is rising among women today. Women are experiencing a lot of changes during the course of pregnancy and after delivering the baby. Physical and hormonal changes in the body and the increasing pressure of a healthy and happy life for the baby from spouse and family and dear ones including the women herself doesn't let the women enjoy motherhood. As a matter of fact, most women go through a phase of depression which is severe in some cases and medical help/counselor advice needs to be taken.

 "The Deeply rooted problem lies in the priority of two lives- the eye candy or the broken soul."
I believe nobody Knows who to prioritize. But everybody knows how to keep the balance but the family and partner are missing to strike the balance.

The emotional turmoil takes a toll on the woman and she starts to feel ignorant and the broken mother starts to live with depression. As this is against her expectations it is the case with full-time homemaker Mom and equally for the Millennial women.

Postpartum Depression Signs and Symptoms

Symptoms of PPD are ignored completely though it's often hard to detect. Many ladies have these symptoms following childbirth:
  1. Difficulty sleeping
  2. Appetite changes
  3. Excessive fatigue
  4. Decreased libido
  5. Frequent mood changes
With PPD, these also are amid other symptoms of major depression, which aren’t typical after childbirth, and should include:
  1. Depressed mood
  2. Loss of delight
  3. Feelings of worthlessness, hopelessness, and helplessness
  4. Thoughts of death or suicide
  5. Thoughts of injuring somebody else
If left untreated and unattended it's dangerous for mom and baby; Symptoms persist beyond 2 weeks.
  • They can’t function normally
  • They can't deal with everyday situations
  • They're feeling extremely anxious, scared, and panicked most of the day.
How she deals with it and overcomes it is another story.
But yes postpartum depression exists and many women are living with it today thinking of solutions.
