Normal postpartum stress, otherwise known as “baby blues,” can occur for some women after birth, and lasts for a short time. It may include mood swings, irritability, reduced concentration and feeling overwhelmed. This phase is completely normal and should not be confused with postpartum depression. If you’re feeling depressed more than a few weeks after giving birth, reach out to your doctor for support and medical advice.
