Postpartum depression is one of the most common complications of childbirth affecting 15-20% of women. The holiday time can be especially difficult and trying for women experiencing any type of depression. Although PPD affects many new mothers, most suffer alone for a long time for fear of appearing weak or being judged by others. They may even fear that their baby will be taken away from them.
Understanding the causes and symptoms of postpartum depression is essential so that help can be sought. With the right treatment and support, a woman suffering from PPD can regain her health and begin to enjoy her role as mother.
