Best Postpartum Depression Treatment And Management Plan

Urgentway healthcare providers are known for effectively providing a range of postpartum depression treatment options

Postpartum depression (PPD) is a condition that involves physical, emotional, and behavioral changes that occur in some women after giving birth. According to the DSM-5, a manual used to diagnose mental disorders, PPD is a form of major depression that begins within 4 weeks of giving birth.

Most new mothers experience the “baby blues” after giving birth, especially when they already have depression symptoms. About 1 in 10 of these women will develop more severe and long-lasting depression after giving birth.

Our UrgentWay healthcare providers are here to provide postpartum depression screening and postpartum depression treatment.

Have you received health care services at UrgentWay before?

Postpartum depression treatment depends on the type of symptoms and their severity. Treatment options include anti-anxiety or antidepressant medications.
Many women may suffer in silence, dismissing their struggles as a normal part of pregnancy and childbirth and not seeking care. This affects their quality of life; therefore, PPD should not be neglected.

Frequently Asked Questions:

What Are Baby Blues?

About 2 to 3 days after giving birth, some women begin to feel depressed, anxious, and upset. They may feel angry at the new baby, their partners, or their other children. They can also:

  • Cry for no clear reason
  • Have trouble sleeping, eating, and making decisions
  • Question if they can handle the care of a baby

These feelings, often called baby blues, can come and go in the first few days after delivery.

How Long Do The Baby Blues Usually Last?

Postpartum blues usually get better in a few days or 1 to 2 weeks without any treatment.

When Does Postpartum Depression Occur?

Postpartum depression can occur up to 1 year after having a baby, but it usually begins 1 to 3 weeks after delivery.

What Happens In Talk Therapy?

In talk therapy (also called psychotherapy), you and a mental health professional talk about your feelings and discuss how to deal with them. Sometimes therapy is needed for only a few weeks, but it may be needed for a few months or more.

What Can Be Done To Help Prevent Postpartum Depression In Women With A History of Depression?

If you have a history of depression at any time in your life or if you are taking an antidepressant, then tell your ob-gyn or other healthcare professional early in your prenatal care. Ideally, you should tell him or her before you become pregnant. He or she may suggest that you begin treatment right after you give birth to prevent postpartum depression. If you were taking antidepressants before pregnancy, then your ob-gyn or other healthcare professional can assess your situation and help you decide whether to continue taking medication during your pregnancy.
