So often people think about “Postpartum Depression” as just classic depression symptoms. It’s easy to imagine the tearfulness, the lack of energy and the loss of enthusiasm that often accompanies depressive episodes. However there are so many other symptoms and feelings to be aware of: there’s unrelenting insomnia, anxiety, complete loss of appetite, and intrusive thoughts just to name a few. Our hope is that this video helps open the discussion about all the different ways a Postpartum Mood Disorder can present, and how hope and help are always available – you just have to reach out.
