It is a severe, long term form of depression, and includes mood swings, sadness, irritability, anxiety, crying, problems focusing, and problems sleeping. There is a difference between postpartum depression and what is commonly referred to as “baby blues”. Baby blues includes mood swings, crying, anxiety, and trouble sleeping but that only lasts up to two weeks. If these symptoms last longer than two weeks, then it is likely that the mother has postpartum depression.

Postpartum depression is also more severe than the baby blues. Additional symptoms may occur, such as excessive crying, severe mood swings, difficulty bonding with the baby, and withdrawing from family and friends. Mothers who experience these symptoms for longer than two weeks after giving birth should seek treatment for their depression.
