Unfortunately, over 15% of mothers will develop Postpartum depression and will experience symptoms such as sad, depressed mood, lack of joy or motivation, and decreased energy. But to think that PPD is just the mother’s problem would be wrong. Rather, it is a family issue, which affects everyone.

If you’ve just had a baby and you’re feeling emotionally all over the map, you may be experiencing what has been termed Postpartum Blues or Baby Blues. Typically, this condition, which affects as many as 80% of new moms is characterized by mood fluctuations, over-sensitivity, feeling overwhelmed, being irritable, worrying and difficulty sleeping even when the baby sleeps.
