Postnatal Depression


Childbirth can be one of the most challenging and rewarding experiences in any woman’s life. While it is a very exciting time, new mums can and do feel tired, stressed and sometimes overwhelmed by their new circumstances; these feelings are natural and a period of adjustment is to be expected. However, for some women these feelings may persist. Postnatal depression is a reaction to a life event and seeking proper support and diagnosis can also help.
