Motherhood doesn’t come easy. It comes knocking at life with a lot of responsibilities and sacrifices for the parents – especially the mother. She doesn’t just have to bear the baby within herself but also once she/he’s born. Waking up at nights, changing diapers, feeding the baby – there’s a lot to the picture than just getting the umbilical cords cut. The baby is always more connected to the mother. She/he wants her warmth almost all the time. It’s a difficult time for the whole family adjusting as per the desires of a little human and seeing the baby as adorable as he/she is through all the messes s/he creates.

  • Mood Swings
  • Crying Episodes
  • Irritability
  • Low Energy
  • Anxiety
  • Appetite Issues
  • Uneven Sleep Cycles
  • Overwhelmed & Mixed Feelings

How to keep everything going?

Most of the times, the PPD starts because women tend to think their whole life has been changed and they are dependent on their babies for everything. If the baby is sleeping, then they can sleep. If the baby is hungry, they have to feed the baby first and then to satisfy their own appetite. They have to adjust to sleeping with a little baby and wake up at the cries. Babies cry and they cry a lot – there’s no hidden truth to that. People would always come to meet the baby and adore him/her too and it would make them feel less…
