Postpartum Depression (cont.)
IN THIS ARTICLE
Postpartum depression is a medical condition, not a sign of weakness. Be honest with yourself and those who care about you. Tell them about your struggle. You, your doctor, and your friends and family can team up to treat your symptoms.

The potential for domestic violence increases during a woman's pregnancy and when a couple is adjusting to a new baby. If your partner is violent or emotionally abusive, you and your baby are physically at risk, and you have an higher risk of postpartum depression. Now more than ever, it's crucial that you protect yourself and your baby—seek support and help. For more information, see the topic Domestic Violence.
