Dealing with postpartum depression
Postpartum depression is common and can happen to anyone. It is nothing to be embarrassed or ashamed about. If you think you are suffering from postpartum depression please seek out help. Let your friends and family know how you are feeling, call your doctor, or reach out to a support group.
Postpartum depression can escalate and potentially become dangerous if left untreated. There are natural treatments such as therapy, diet changes, and exercise. Medication is often used to treat postpartum depression and it is very effective. Most of the medications used are safe for breastfeeding so if you are breastfeeding make sure you let your doctor know.
The most important thing to know is you are not alone. Please reach out for support and get help. Take care of yourself!
