Tell your doctor if you are experiencing any of the symptoms described, explain how you feel and what ideas and emotions affect you the most. Don’t let something common like postpartum depression turn into psychosis and put your and your baby’s health at risk.
Once your doctor has listened to you, they will give you a depression questionnaire and request a blood test, as well as any additional tests they deem necessary to rule out possible conditions that may be contributing to the disorder.
The treatment to follow will depend on the degree of depression, but they will surely prescribe antidepressant medications and psychotherapy sessions, so that combined they manage to control the symptoms and get over the depression faster.
