Postpartum Depression: What New & Pregnant Moms Need to Know About PPD by Dr. Christina Hibbert

Postpartum Depression (PPD) affects one in five new moms and as many as 15 percent of pregnant women, too. This makes PPD the No. 1 complication associated with childbirth. (I, myself, am a four-time survivor!). Symptoms of postpartum depression include: 

  • irritability
  • sadness
  • crying
  • fatigue
  • anxiety
  • difficulty coping
  • changes in sleep 
  • changes in appetite

PPD can affect dads, partners, babies and the entire family, too. The good news is that help is available and treatment is highly effective. Visit my website at DrChristinaHibbert.com for resources and information, and believe me when I say, "You will be well."
