What is postnatal depression?

It’s quite normal to feel a bit ‘down’ during the first few days after giving birth.

You are likely to feel a real mix of emotions - joy at seeing your baby, relief that you are no longer pregnant and fear about how you will cope with motherhood.

Known as the "baby blues", this feeling usually arrives at the same time as your breast milk and can make you feel miserable, anxious and tearful for a short period of time.

For most women, these feelings go away within a week or two but for others the feelings persist and become worse and are a sign of postnatal depression.
