|It’s totally normal to feel sad, irritable, anxious or tearful a few days after delivery. If you feel like this, don’t worry! Tiredness, hormonal change, and stress can lead to feelings of sadness or emotional vulnerability, which usually disappear within a few days. However, in some cases, they may persist for longer. If so, you could be suffering from postpartum depression, so you should go with a specialist.
These are some symptoms of post-partum depression that new moms tend to have:
• Sadness and crying
Assess your feelings as strong or low, if they last long or not, and whether you feel them frequently or scarcely to identify if you need professional support. In the meantime, the following activities could make you feel better: sharing your feelings, exercising, resting, taking a stroll, and eating healthy meals and snacks.
