Perinatal & Postpartum Mood Disorders: What you should know & how you can help.

April 21, 2017

This is a very important episode of Pregnant Pause Radio, with a special guest host, Lisa Tremayne of the Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorder (PMAD) at Monmouth Medical Center in Long Branch, NJ.

What does it feel like to have postpartum depression or postpartum anxiety?  What are the signs or symptoms? How do you know when you have it? And if you do have it, what should you do? 

Many women have a variety of mood symptoms in the aftermath of delivery. 50-85% of women feel Postpartum Blues or “Baby Blues” for a short time, usually 1-3 weeks after delivery. Common symptoms of “Baby Blues” can be mood instability, depressed mood, weepiness, sadness, irritability, anxiety, lack of concentration and feelings of dependency. Symptoms of “Baby Blues” usually subside 1-3 weeks after delivery. These symptoms are often self-limited and are to be distinguished from a more severe condition often called Postpartum Depression (PPD) which has increased severity and duration of symptoms.

Postpartum Depression occurs in up to 10% of births. It typically emerges over the first 2-3 months after childbirth but may occur at any point after delivery. Symptoms of PPD last for more than 2 weeks. Depression after childbirth is a serious illness and can have significant and lasting impact on the patient, infant, and family.
