Post Natal Depression and Perinatal Difficulties due to birth trauma, infertility or multiple miscarriages

Post Natal Depression is a specific type of depression which happens after a woman has a baby. It can also affect fathers of babies, although this is rarely spoken about and is seen as a taboo.

Post Natal Depression is more than the typical "baby blues" that a woman suffers after a baby is born; it is ongoing for at least six weeks after the birth of the baby and can cause the mother or father to feel disconnected from the baby and from other people. Often people who suffer from Post Natal Depression can become highly isolated and feel extremely low. They can find it difficult to care for the baby and often other family members need to step in to look after the new baby.

If you feel that you have Post Natal Depression, it can feel very shaming, as new mothers believe that they are expected to feel very loving towards their newborn child. Often a therapy can be very useful in helping support the new mother or father (or both) through this extremely difficult time, and allow them to fully bond with their new baby.
