Perinatal Depression

Perinatal Depression (PND) is a depressive illness which affects between 10 to 15 in every 100 women having a baby.
It can happen any time during the perinatal journey, about a third of women with PND have symptoms which started in pregnancy and continue after birth. 

It often starts within one or two months of giving birth or several months after having a baby.

Perinatal Depression looks and feels like –

Feelings of hopelessness
Crying and a feeling of sadness
Loss of interest in the baby
Extreme tiredness and sleeplessness
Feeling joyless
Loss of appetite
Anxiety or panic attacks
Feelings of resentment
Ruminating on the past with regret
Feelings of guilt and shame for thoughts or feelings
