The birth of a new baby also brings a lot happiness, joy as well as responsibilities for the new-mother and family. Being responsible of this tiny bundle can get overwhelming. Most women can relate to the emotional roller coaster that dominates the first few weeks after a baby is born. But many experience symptoms that are perplexing to say the least. For instance, perpetual sadness, not wanting to bond with the baby, feeling inadequate and so on. I come across so many women who go through this, without much understanding and knowing what to do. The new mother feels like the loneliest person in the world when she’s battling postpartum, because families also don’t know enough to understand and help her. So I decided to dedicate a Podcast on addressing Postpartum Depression as part of the Fertility, Motherhood and Wellness Show.
What this podcast covers,
· What is Postpartum Depression and Causes
· Stories of women who have gone through it
· Signs of Postpartum Depression
· Symptoms to watch out for during pregnancy
· What Husbands can do
· Role of families
· Self-Care to support yourself during that phase / How to deal with it yourself during that phase?
· Importance of getting treatment
