ABOUT POSTPARTUM DEPRESSION
Postpartum depression (PPD) is one of the most common medical
complications during and after pregnancy. During pregnancy, the
levels of certain hormones rise and then rapidly fall after giving birth.
Among other factors, these hormonal fluctuations have been
associated with developing PPD symptoms. Symptoms of PPD
may include extreme sadness, anxiety, or hopelessness and should not be ignored. Symptoms may occur at any time during pregnancy or within the first few weeks after childbirth.
THE IMPACT OF POSTPARTUM DEPRESSION
Postpartum depression can have negative consequences on a mother and her family. It can also impact the child’s health and development. If your PPD symptoms persist, it is important to reach out to your health care provider right away. If you need immediate help, or you feel you may harm yourself or your baby, please dial 911 or your local emergency number. You can also call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, 800-273-8255, available 24 hours a day.
PPD can affect any woman, regardless of her age, race, ethnicity, or economic status. In the US, estimates of new mothers identified with PPD each year vary by state from 8% to 20%, with an overall average of 11.5%. Although awareness has improved, about 43% of women would not seek treatment because of the stigma of PPD.
