Parenting is a life-changing experience. It may also be frustrating, isolating, and perplexing. Many physical and mental changes can occur in pregnant women and new moms, leaving them feeling unhappy, frightened, overwhelmed, or bewildered. These sensations pass swiftly for many women. However, if these symptoms persist or worsen, professional assistance is required.
A woman might experience a variety of mood problems during and after delivery. These issues range from the “baby blues,” a modest shift in mood that many women experience after birth and resolves on its own within two weeks, to more serious issues like postpartum depression and postpartum psychosis.
Perinatal Depression Diagnosis
Between 15% and 20% of all women suffer from pregnancy-related sadness or anxiety. Among the symptoms are:
• Tiredness or fatigue
• Changes in appetite
• An inability to enjoy things
• Anxiety and stress, particularly concerns about the baby’s health
• Difficulties attaching to the pregnancy or the infant
• Feeling overburdened
• Frequent mood swings
• Ongoing sadness
• Senses of inadequacy or guilt
• Difficulties concentrating, making judgments, or recalling information
Postpartum psychosis is an uncommon disorder characterized by auditory hallucinations and delusions, as well as, less commonly, visual hallucinations. This is an emergency that requires prompt assessment and potentially hospitalization, affecting just one or two women per thousand.
If you are feeling anxiety or depression during or after your pregnancy, you must consult your doctor. Providing this information can assist your doctor in assessing your requirements and determining the best treatment choice for you.
Programs available for Inpatient Perinatal at daytime are:
