post partum depression

What are some symptoms of post partum depression? I hear this is quite common!


yeah i think it is quite common. my sister-in-law went through this w her eldest son and it was like she could not hear the baby cry and ignored it the whole time. thankfully she got over it.


I think this is common with first time moms. they are typically depressed and irritable especially around the baby.


PPD can also be caused by lack of vitamins, but most probably because of the changes in the body after childbirth.

Symptoms include sadness, fatigue, insomnia, appetite changes, reduced libido, crying episodes, anxiety, and irritability. (i got this from wiki)
