DEPLETION

Our bodies go through a lot during pregnancy, which can lead to postpartum depletion. Symptoms can include fatigue, mood swings, concentration difficulties, sleep disturbances, hair loss, and weakened immunity.  Our experts recommend ways to optimize nutrition, rest (when possible), seek emotional support, and balance caregiving with self-care to insure your body has what it needs.

STRESS, ANXIETY & MOOD
Postpartum problems are common but shouldn’t be normal.

During the postpartum period, approximately 85% of women face some level of mood disturbance. For many, these emotions are transient and mild, often called the ‘baby blues.’ However, about 10 to 15% of mothers may grapple with more substantial challenges like depression or anxiety. This is why it’s so important to pay careful attention to your mental health and know how to seek support in the first few months after birth.

*If you are struggling with your mental health please seek urgent support from your provider. Or you can call the The National Maternal Mental Health Hotline. Call or text 1-833-TLC-MAMA (1-833-852-6262).
