"Post-partum depression can happen any time during your baby's first year of life," says Slocum. Signs include, but are not limited to: feeling disconnected or uninterested in your baby and yourself; feeling isolated and alone; a loss of interest in normal activities; mood swings marked by exaggerated highs and lows; feelings of doubt, guilt, helplessness, hopelessness, outbursts of anger; and an inability to sleep. Everyone's entitled to a bad day, but if these feelings persist over time, give your doctor or midwife a call. That's what they are there for.
