Have you or somebody you know has given birth recently? Have you observed any behavioral changes? These changes are challenges faced by the mother and needs to be talked about and understood as well!
Baby blues are nothing but mood swings experienced by women after giving birth. With the joy of having a new family member, there are emotional and physical challenges experienced by women. These are generally ignored and not given importance. If not taken proper care, baby blues can lead to postpartum depression.
Some common signs and symptoms of baby blues include:
- Weepiness or crying for no apparent reason
- Mood changes
- Poor concentration
- Insomnia (even when the baby is sleeping)
To conclude, the exact cause of baby blues is unknown; but sharing of emotions, feelings, and challenges being faced has been known to work and help overcome the mood swings. Baby blues is known to last approximately for two weeks. However, always consult your healthcare provider if you have any queries, or if the symptoms persist for a longer duration or become intense.
