What is Postnatal Depression

Postnatal Depression is a form of clinical depression that can affect women, and less frequently men, after childbirth. Studies report rates among women from 5% to 25%, but methodological differences among the studies make the actual prevalence rate unclear. Postnatal depression occurs in women after they have carried a child, usually in the first few months, and may last up to several months or even a year.

Symptoms include sadness, fatigue, changes in sleeping and eating patterns, reduced libido, crying episodes, anxiety, and irritability. Although a number of risk factors have been identified and the causes are not well understood, help is available.


Recovery from Postnatal Depression is Achievable

Many women recover with a treatment programme of postnatal depression counselling. It might consist of just counselling or, in some cases, anti-depressant medication. Postnatal Depression (PND) can affect women in different ways.

Among men, in particular new fathers, the incidence of postnatal depression has been estimated to be between 1.2% and 25.5%.

Suffering from Postnatal Depression Symptoms may not necessarily mean you are depressed as some of these symptoms affect women after childbirth anyway. If in any doubt speak with your GP as PND can interfere with your day-to-day life. You might feel unable to look after your baby, or feel too anxious to leave the house or keep in touch with friends.


Many mothers do not recognise that they have PND, and do not talk to family and friends about how they are really feeling. It is important for partners, family members and friends to recognise the signs of PND at an early stage and to seek professional advice as soon as possible.

You may also have frightening thoughts about yourself. If your thoughts are overpowering be sure that you speak with a professional as soon as possible.
