Postnatal/Perinatal Depression (PND)

During pregnancy or getting used to life with a new baby can be incredibly exhausting both physically and mentally.  This is very common in the first 4 weeks of having your baby and is known as the "baby blues".   

If this carries on beyond the 4 weeks you may have PND and you may also be affected by some of these things.

  • lack of confidence & finding hard to cope

  • Feeling guilty that you are not able to enjoy your baby

  • Having dark thoughts

  • feel alone

  • Tearful or irritable

  • Changes in sleeping patterns

  • Low sex drive

  • Anxiety

  • Difficulty concentrating or remembering things

PND affects about 13% of mums, so be assured that you are not alone.  The good news is with the right support you WILL find your way.
