Postpartum Mood Disorders/Depression (PPMD)

Postpartum Mood Disorders/Depression (PPMD) PPMD is less common than the baby blues but not uncommon as it is estimated that 20 to 40 percent of women experience PPMD at some point during the first year after childbirth. Symptoms are similar to a mood disorder but more intense and longer lasting. Common Symptoms of PPMD: - feel inadequate, despondent - unable to cope with everyday life - hopeless - very anxious or have panic attacks - obsessed with getting things into order - fears about your health and your baby’s health - sleep difficulties - under or over eating - social withdrawal or not wanting to be alone - anger A difficult or unexpected childbirth experience, having a premature baby or special needs baby increases the likelihood of PPMD. You should contact your physician or midwife if these symptoms occur frequently and cause you to be unable to care for your baby and/or yourself.Postpartum Mood Disorders/Depression (PPMD)
