Postpartum Depression Understanding

Postpartum Depression: Overview
The birth of a baby can trigger a jumble of powerful emotions, from excitement and joy to fear and anxiety. Most new moms experience postpartum "baby blues" after childbirth, which commonly include mood swings, crying spells, anxiety and difficulty sleeping. Baby blues typically begin within the first two to three days after delivery, and may last for up to two weeks. But some new moms experience a more severe, long-lasting form of depression known as postpartum depression. Rarely, an extreme mood disorder called postpartum psychosis also may develop after childbirth. Postpartum depression isn’t a character flaw or a weakness. Sometimes it’s simply a complication of giving birth.

Diagnosis
As part of evaluation, doctor may:
• Do a depression screening that may include having fill out a questionnaire

• Order blood tests to determine whether an underactive thyroid is contributing to signs and symptoms

• Order other tests, if warranted, to rule out other causes for the symptoms

Treatment
There are two main treatments for postpartum depression: medication and therapy. Either one can be used alone, but they may be more effective when used together. It’s also important to make some healthy choices in daily routine.
• Medication: Antidepressants have a direct effect on the brain. They alter the chemicals that regulate mood. They won’t work right away, though. It can take several weeks of taking the medication before the patients notice a difference in mood.
• Therapy: A psychiatrist, psychologist, or other mental health professional can provide counseling. Therapy can help make sense of destructive thoughts and offer strategies for working through them.
