Postpartum depression is a form of depression that can occur in the weeks or months following childbirth.
Symptoms of postpartum depression can include feelings of sadness, hopelessness, and worthlessness, as well as difficulty bonding with the baby, changes in appetite and sleep patterns, and loss of interest in activities that were previously enjoyable.
Postpartum anger is a less common condition that can occur after childbirth. It is characterized by feelings of irritability, frustration, and anger that are more intense or prolonged than would be expected in the postpartum period.
These feelings can be directed at the baby, the partner, or others, and may interfere with the woman’s ability to care for herself or her baby.
It is important for a woman experiencing either postpartum depression or postpartum anger to seek help from a healthcare professional.
Treatment options may include therapy, medication, or a combination of both.
