You are not alone. Up to 20% of new mothers suffer from perinatal and/or postpartum depression.
“Normal baby blues” will subside within one or two weeks. This affects 80% of new mothers. Many women cry easily or feel stressed following the birth of a baby. However, some women experience a more intense sadness that doesn’t go away. If this lasts for more than a couple of weeks, you may have postpartum depression.
Symptoms of perinatal depression or postpartum depression can occur any time during pregnancy or after delivery and last from a few weeks to a year.
Fill out our free depression screening form and our nurse practitioner will reach out to you Monday thru Friday within 48 hours with very helpful information.
