Postpartum depression is a type of mood disorder that affects women after giving birth. It is characterized by feelings of sadness, despair, and extreme fatigue that can interfere with daily functioning and bonding with the newborn. It is estimated that around 15% of women experience postpartum depression, but the actual numbers may be higher due to underreporting and misdiagnosis.

Postpartum depression is believed to be caused by a combination of hormonal changes, psychological factors, and social stressors. The sudden drop in hormone levels after childbirth, coupled with the physical and emotional demands of caring for a newborn, can contribute to the development of this condition. Women with a history of depression, a lack of social support, or difficult life circumstances are at a higher risk.

Symptoms of postpartum depression may include persistent feelings of sadness, hopelessness, and worthlessness, loss of interest in activities, changes in appetite and sleep patterns, difficulty bonding with the baby, and thoughts of self-harm or harming the baby. It is important to seek help if experiencing these symptoms, as postpartum depression can have serious consequences for both the mother and the baby. Treatment options include therapy, support groups, medication, and lifestyle changes. With proper support and treatment, women can recover from postpartum depression and regain their emotional well-being.
