Postpartum Depression – BLAME GAME
Well, it’s very important to take care of the mother’s mental health. Just think of a mother who had delivered her baby and due to a few medical reasons, the baby is in NICU.
Does no one bother to ask her how does she feel? She is, obviously, anxious, agitated, confused handling her is more important because she is scared deep down and blaming herself for everything. On top of that when the support system blames her, neglects her it gets worsened. This leads to postpartum depression.
So what is PPD? In common terms, it’s a combination of hormonal and psychological changes. The symptoms are sleeplessness, crying suddenly for no reason, mood swings, loss of interest in food and self.
A small concern towards a mom will change her, it gives her hope, a ray of confidence. Concern can be given by anyone for that matter all it takes is the Heart to do it. Let’s have that Heart!!!!
