Postpartum depression, also referred to as PPD, is a type of depression that some women experience after childbirth. Mothers with postpartum depression experience prolonged feelings of extreme sadness that may make it difficult for them to complete daily care activities for themselves or for others. PPD is the most common complication for women in their postnatal stage with symptoms occurring within 1 to 3 weeks after having a baby.
This differs from the “baby blues,” a term used to describe the range of mild, unpleasant emotions mothers feel after childbirth. Baby blues affects up to 80% of mothers and lasts about a week or two, with symptoms going away on their own as hormone levels return to normal.
By contrast, postpartum depression houses symptoms of extreme sadness and anxiety which affects a woman’s ability to carry out daily functions. These symptoms do not go away on their own and often require help from postpartum depression counseling.
Postpartum Depression (PPD) can last for months or even years without proper treatment. PPD treatment is available that can help women suffering from post-pregnancy depression manage their symptoms and improve their quality of life. PPD usually occurs if a mother has been experiencing symptoms for over 2 weeks post pregnancy.
Highland Springs postpartum depression therapists use an integrated approach to treating those struggling with postpartum depression. Our staff will perform a postpartum depression screening asking you general questions before they determine a treatment plan. Each of our depression recovery centers incorporates both medicine and cognitive behavioral therapy as a standard for treatment. This includes a unique partnership between the client and therapist that is utilized to treat both the behavioral and chemical aspects of PPD.
