UNDERSTANDING PERIPARTUM
(POSTPARTUM) DEPRESSION

Peripartum depression is a category of depression that takes place during pregnancy or after childbirth. The birth of a baby could lead to powerful emotions coupled with a ton of joy and excitement, and even fear and anxiety at times. Peripartum depression treatment becomes necessary when the symptoms refuse to subside. Heightened emotions could eventually lead to unexpected consequences at times - peripartum depression.

Quite often, new moms tend to experience “baby blues” that could cause mood swings, anxiety, depression, and difficulty in sleeping too. Albeit rare, peripartum depression treatment becomes a necessity. The right treatment could help ease the symptoms and help the patients bond better with their babies.
