Wait, isn’t that just the “Baby Blues”?
No, PMAD and Baby Blues are two different things.
It’s normal to experience a period of adjustment after giving birth. Approximately 50 percent to 80 percent of new mothers experience mood swings and weepiness during the first two to three weeks after giving birth. With time, patience, good self-care (sleeping, eating, hydrating, etc.), and the positive support of family and friends, symptoms will often fluctuate and usually disappear within a few days or weeks after birth.If these symptoms persist for more than 2-3 weeks, speak to your doctor about your symptoms.
