Postpartum Depression: You Are Not Alone
Dr. Alexandra Cox PA-C of Aspira Health discusses the hormonal and physical changes that go hand in hand with Postpartum Depression. If you are experiencing Postpartum Depression, you are not alone!
Pregnancy is the biggest thing a woman’s body can go through. So many changes occur during after pregnancy, and hormonal shifts can sometimes lead to postpartum depression. When you are pregnant, your estrogen levels are very high. After you give birth, the levels drop. When hormone levels dip too quickly, you may experience symptoms of depression. After you give birth, it’s important to stay in tune with your body and your feelings. If your symptoms persist past two weeks, you should see a healthcare professional and get screened for postpartum depression.
