Postpartum depression

Postpartum depression

We know that postpartum can be a very difficult time in a woman's life. Especially for new mothers, the risk of birth depression is very high. And with it, all the risks that it entails.

The main factor that affects postpartum depression is the hormonal changes that we all have at this specific time.

However, there are factors that can lead to depression:

1. Infant colic. Colic is very stressful for the family. New moms may feel that they do not know how to act with their baby and this is very dangerous. It is very important that the mother hears that it is not her fault, because, even if she already knows that it is not, we have to remind her. Also, having a plan B to help ease your little one's pain will also help. Apply the Kusi Wawa Method and you will see that the routine will bring you security and you will feel better.

2. Problems with breastfeeding. Problems with breastfeeding can, again, affect the safety of the new mother. See a lactation consultant to avoid problems. No need to wait, from the get-go. The sooner the better, and the safer it will be.

3. Create community. Motherhood is sometimes very lonely. It is important to have a community. Once you have breastfeeding on track, there are breastfeeding groups that are super interesting. They allow you to share your "problems" or your fears. And build community. It is a basic support when it comes to becoming a mother.

4. The family. The family must support the new mother. Ideally, the environment does everything so that the mother only has to be aware of the new baby. Caring so that she can care. The family that is around the mother has to be positive, support the new mother and add. Beware of some more negative or "critical" helps. Now is not the time and the new mother must be protected.

5. Sleep. Not sleeping is hard. It makes everything more difficult and everything looks a bit blacker. Help mom to rest. Take care of the baby so that he can sleep and thus, we help him feel better.

If you have doubts that the new mother may suffer from postpartum depression, see a professional immediately. If you mention it to the midwife who makes the check-ups, she can surely redirect you to a suitable professional.
