In this article I will be sharing things I Learned from my Postpartum Depression. All through my pregnancy I spent a good amount of time reading about pregnancy, childbirth and infant care. I thought I was prepared. I was aware of how difficult breastfeeding can be. I was aware of postpartum depression and how to deal with it (in case I suffered from one). I was really looking forward to seeing my child and I had a feeling that I will not suffer from postpartum depression.
But my hormones had a different plan. I delivered a beautiful baby and as soon as I was wheeled to my hospital cabin I felt like crying. Since I was already armored with some knowledge about PPD I tried to calm myself down and look at the sunny side of things. I consoled myself that it could be baby blues will will subside in a couple of days. I simply cannot have PPD. But the gloom followed me till home and beyond.
I suffered from PPD for six months.
Wishing a heady recovery for the new mommy.
