Maternal Depression Affect Baby and Mom 

Maternal depression encompasses several conditions that may affect females anytime during their pregnancy and persist up to a year after giving birth. Postpartum Depression (PPD) is one type mothers and loved ones should look out for. Being depressed common Image result for Postpartum Maternal Depressionand everyone feels at one point or period in their life. However, when these feelings last beyond a couple of days, it can interfere with the daily lives of the mother as well as the baby and result in weakened bonds.

 Moms feel less willing to be active with their child and often do not sing, read,  or play with them. They may also fail to care for the basic needs of their little one by ensuring the car seat it secure as well as making or following up on well visits for things like immunizations. PPD is a double edged sword where the child grows to not respond or interact with the mother too. It is possible this can plummet the mother even deeper into negative feelings and increase anxiety.

How Common  is Postpartum Depression?

It is believed that as much as 10-20% of new mothers experience postpartum depression.

Those at particular risk of PPD are women of childbearing age under 24 that are sensitive during the first few months of delivery . Mothers with a history of substance or drug abuse and a personal or family history of anxiety and depression are also at risk. One thing to keep in mind is that maternal depression is still a chronic complication that can come and go. It is not always solely a problem that occurs within a certain timeframe after the baby is delivered. Mothers are always encouraged to express how they feel to others and their loved ones should monitor them whenever possible if they suspect the mother is going through PDD. 

What to Look Out For in PPD
