Certainly not you!
Postpartum depression (PPD) happens due to the enormous physical and hormonal changes going on in your body.
The primary cause of PPD is…
- the shifting of reproductive hormones following your baby’s delivery.
Other secondary causes may include…
- sleep deprivation,
- inadequate nutrition,
- poor partner support,
- health issues of mom or baby,
- a high needs baby, and/or
- other major stressors that may cause or exacerbate PPD.
A Final Thought – From the Pillow
Postpartum depression (PPD) can happen to the smartest, strongest, and most loving of moms – YOU!
So don’t think PPD happened because of something you did or didn’t do. Okay?
