Are you feeling depressed after giving birth or having a child? It’s normal to have mild mood swings after having a baby, but postpartum depression is an entirely different beast. Postpartum depression is a serious mental illness characterized by feelings of sadness, anger, detachment, or hopelessness that lingers on for longer than a few days after giving birth.

If you believe that you are experiencing postpartum depression, you should seek postpartum depression therapy immediately. Whether you are located in downtown New Orleans, Algiers Point, Bayou St. John, East Carrollton, or even Garden District, Mental Health Match can help you easily find an experienced therapist or counselor who best meets your needs.

Postpartum Depression Symptoms

Experiences vary from person to person, but here are some symptoms of postpartum depression:

  • You are extremely irritable.
  • You find it difficult to concentrate.
  • You feel depressed or have frequent mood swings.
  • You have had thoughts of harming yourself or others, including your baby.
  • You don’t feel like you’re bonding with your baby.
  • You cry often.
  • You feel alone even when surrounded by loved ones.
  • You have the above symptoms for longer than two weeks after giving birth.

This is not an exhaustive list of postpartum depression symptoms.

It can be difficult to differentiate postpartum depression symptoms from those of the “baby blues”. To get some clarity, read licensed therapist Lindsay Pearce’s article that highlights the difference between baby blues and postpartum depression.
