Mother and her newborn baby
Are you at risk for another episode of Postpartum Depression?
Elly was completely shocked when she developed Postpartum Depression following the birth of her first baby. Her pregnancy was planned and uneventful and labor and birth were natural and without complications. But a few weeks after the birth, with ongoing sleep deprivation, a colicky baby and lack of help and support, Elly started feeling down, unmotivated, anxious and hopeless. When one evening she burst into tears and told her husband Peter that she couldn't cope anymore, he urged her to see a therapist.
