The National Institute of Mental Health produced a video to help us understand the difference between baby blues and postpartum depression. Postpartum depression is a mood disorder that can affect women shortly before or soon after childbirth, but commonly begins within a month after delivery. This under-recognized and under-treated disorder can affect any woman of childbearing age. The video provides patient testimony and information on the signs and symptoms of postpartum depression and reinforces the importance of seeking help and treatment from a health professional.
Until next time….
Change. Discover. Transform.
