Gurgle.com Explains How to Spot the Signs of Antenatal and Postnatal Depression
Date:3/9/2009

fairly similar to those of Antenatal Depression and include:

  • apathy
  • an inability to enjoy anything
  • feelings of irritability
  • excessive crying,
  • a lack of appetite
  • trouble sleeping
  • overwhelming feelings of sadness or despair
  • anxiety
  • a sense that you can't cope with the demands of a newborn
  • compulsions
  • low energy levels

What are the causes?

Although anyone can suffer from postnatal depression, there are incidences which can make it more likely. For example, you may be more likely to develop PND if:

  • you have undergone major life changes during pregnancy
  • you lack support from family and friends
  • your baby is experiencing health problems
  • you have a history of depression
  • your baby was unplanned or unwanted
  • loss of sleep and/or appetite
  • anxiety
  • panic attacks

How can I help?

  • as with any form of depression, the best course of action to take is to seek medical advice immediately. Your doctor may prescribe anti-depressants or suggest counselling
  • share the parenting responsibilities with those around you
  • talk to others about how you're feeling; don't bottle up your emotions
  • avoid the temptation to blame yourself or feel guilty; remember that this is not your fault
  • Get plenty of rest
  • Eat a healthy, well-balanced diet
