Moms Support Program

Having a baby can be one of the most exciting and rewarding events in your life. It can be very stressful, too. For many women, it’s a time of confusion, fear and uncertainty. Depression during and after pregnancy is a common problem. 

How Do I Know If I Am Depressed? 

Many new mothers will experience the baby blues. The baby blues are perfectly normal. However, you may have a more serious condition if you experience any of these symptoms:

  • Feel sad, anxious or overwhelmed 
  • Feel overwhelmed with normal tasks 
  • Feel angry, irritable or helpless 
  • Fear she might harm herself or her baby 
  • Fear being left alone 
  • Regret having a baby 
  • Have trouble sleeping 
  • Isolate yourself from friends and family 
  • Have difficulty concentrating 

What Should I do If I Have Symptoms of Depression? 

Depression can interfere with your ability to function, including your ability to care for yourself and your child. It is important to seek treatment as soon as possible if you are suffering from any of the symptoms. Don’t wait.
