More Information on PPD
It's important to remember that, on their own, these signs and symptoms are typical for new moms. However, if you find you are suffering from intense, all-consuming anxiety, and your PPD symptoms don't fade after two weeks, get worse, interfere with your day-to-day life, and include thoughts of harming yourself or your baby, seek professional help. Ask your partner to be aware of any warning signs, too — you may not be able to recognize them in yourself.
If you or your partner are exhibiting symptoms of PPD, call your doctor, or seek help from Postpartum Support International. PPD is treatable when you get appropriate help.
