Baby Blues OR Postpartum Depression?
Sarah McMoyler, RN posted:
Baby Blues can happen within hours, days or weeks of the baby being born. Here are the primary symptoms:
-Mood Swings
-Decreased Concentration
-Trouble Sleeping
ALL of the above are common with new mothers!

Postpartum Depression is not as common as Baby Blues; although the numbers are rising. Symptoms may include:
-Loss of appetite
-Intense irritability
-Overwhelming fatigue
-Lack of interest in life
-Feelings of shame, guilt or inadequacy
-Sever mood swings
-Thoughts of harming herself or the baby
***Relatives and/or close friends NEED to contact her OB/Midwife for assistance. The good news is that there is help available to support her through this unique life transition.

Have you had any of the above symptoms? Share your experiences here so that we can all learn and support you.
