You might feel uncomfortable, after seeing the title of the article. But believe this topic requires the same attention just like other problems & issues.....

It's a part of nature. It's a part of the existence of life in this world. We should not feel shame or shy about enlightening such topics.

  • Postpartum

Right after giving birth, the body of the mother returns to its original state ( in terms of the size of the uterus & different sex-related hormones). It is known as postpartum. normally it is used for the first six months after giving birth.

Giving birth is not an easy process, it is very painful for all the creatures on this planet. I remember I heard somewhere that labor feels like all bones of the body got fractured at the same time. Women in this period suffer a lot.

  • Risks associated with postpartum

There are many life threatening risks associated with childbirth including ;

  • postpartum hemorrhage

  • different kinds of infections

  • blood clotting

  • postpartum depression.

A that time women require great attention from the family, especially from their spouses.

  • Postpartum Depression (PPD)

It refers to a variety of changes including emotional, psychological as well related to the body that might occur in a girl right after baby delivery.

  • Symptoms of postpartum depression

  • constipation

  • low energy level

  • puffy eyes

  • runny breast

  • difficulty in sleeping

  • persistent headache

  • pain in back

  • extreme fatigue

  • extensive bleeding

    causes of postpartum depression

  • taking alcohol or drugs during pregnancy

  • premature delivery

  • domestic violence

  • lack of emotional support from family

  • depression due to financial or other issues

Treatment for postpartum depression

Although treating postpartum depression is very tough and thus harms badly the health of a woman. 2 recommend methods for treating this condition are as follows;

  • providing emotional support during pregnancy & after child birth

Let's spread awareness regarding this issue and save the health as well as the life of all women. most of the time people feel shy about consulting ors.
