The period after you have put to bed may be filled with many emotions. You may feel everything from joy to fear to sadness. If you feel sad and it starts to become severe and starts to interfere with your everyday life, you may be experiencing postpartum depression (PPD).
Symptoms of PPD usually start within a few weeks of delivery, though they may develop up to six months afterwards. These symptoms may include mood swings, trouble bonding with your baby, and difficulty thinking or making decisions.
