Having a baby is a life-changing experience.
Changing hormones, anxiety about caring for the baby and lack of sleep all affect your emotions.
During the past month Nashville star Hayden Panettierre revealed that she has been suffering from post-partum depression. As a result, she is currently taking medical leave from her show and is seeking treatment at a specialist facility.
What Panttierre is suffering from is of much more concern than the “baby blues”, which can usually disappear within a few days following the baby’s birth. Post-partum, or post-natal, depression is very different.
Tips on How To Help Post-Partum Depression
The first step is to get as much rest as you possibly can. While that may be difficult with a newborn, the more rest that your body and your mind gets, the more healing you will receive. Other treatment tips include:
Accepting help from friends and family
Taking the time to connect and talk with new mums about their experiences
Taking care of yourself (i.e. if a spa day is needed, make it happen)
Avoid alcohol or recreational drugs which can only alter your mood and make it worse
