We mothers often expect that, from the moment we first set eyes on our newborn babies, we’ll be filled with pure happiness and euphoria and never have another dark thought again. And while many women do feel an instant bond and sense of elation, sadly, not all of us do. That itself can feel like a failure, bringing guilt and fear and further unhappiness. If postpartum depression – or the “baby blues” – has hit you, you are not alone. Babble has information about what, exactly, you might be going through and what you can do about it; stories from moms who have been there and back – and gone on to have more children. And by the way, it’s not only moms who experience PPD, their partners – be they men or women – can get it, too.
