There are approximately 4 million live births occur in the U.S. each year, and among those approximately 600,000 individuals are diagnosed with postpartum depression.

What is Postpartum Depression?
Postpartum depression is a mood disorder affecting women after giving birth. In the case of postpartum depression, women experience extreme symptoms of depression that last longer than more common “baby blues.” Moreover, postpartum depression affects a woman’s ability to care for not only herself, but her newborn baby and family. Unfortunately, postpartum depression can go undiagnosed in women.
Moreover, it’s important to note that baby blues is a separate condition from postpartum depression. Baby blues occurs after the birth of a child and is caused by the heightened stress of taking care of a newborn baby. According to the National Institute of Mental Health, up to 80 percent of mothers experience baby blues. With baby blues, the stress, fatigue, and emotions are mild and last for a couple of days to a week or two. Unlike postpartum depression, the blues go away on their own.
What causes postpartum depression? Numerous factors play a role in postpartum depression, including women experiencing lower levels of estrogen and progesterone after childbirth and emotional factors from taking care of a newborn.
What Are Postpartum Depression Symptoms?
Common signs of postpartum depression include:
- Excessive crying
- Severe mood swings
- Trouble concentrating
- Loss of interest in activities
- Severe fatigue
- Having trouble forming an emotional attachment with the baby
- Doubting ability to care for the baby
- Feelings of worthlessness, shame, guilt
It’s important to note that not every woman with postpartum depression experiences every symptom listed above. Additionally, only a healthcare provider can diagnose postpartum depression. Talk to your healthcare provider about whether or not a postpartum depression treatment center would be right for you.
