Depression can be caused by different reasons and many young, adult people and seniors suffer from this disease. My theme for today is different and it’s about postpartum depression. I won’t keep on children, teens or adults people’s depression but I will keep on depression at young new mothers.
When you are wearing the baby in the thomb you are happy and you have no problems with depression. But, when you gave birth to that little baby, everything changes. firs of all changes your body, your feelings, your emotions, changes the way how you think and react. Everything changes, nothing is like before and it comes a period of postpartum depression.
Women can’t escape from this depression but some of them feel it more while the others aren’t aware of what they are passing at that moment. Some of them don’t have any symptoms of postpartum depression while others are suffering inside.
Doctors says that if mothers are breast feading their babies can easily pass this period because this helps them to surpass the pain in the stomach and make life connection with the little baby. Here we will tell you the symptoms of postpartum depression.
