babyblues?
Two months ago, I had a beautiful baby girl and I'm very greatful dont get me wrong. but I've been feeling really down lately. My mom told me that its normal to have baby blues after. But I've just been feeling tired and losing my sleep and feeling really depressed a lot more. I'm so tempted to start smoking again.

Hi there! Congratulations on your baby girl! A new baby brings on many changes in your life, including hormonal, emotional and physical changes. These changes can really impact your stress, nutrition, and sleep. As your mother said, “baby blues” are common among new mothers. It’s normal to find yourself feeling more anxious, sad, teary, worried, or overwhelmed. However, it is expected that “baby blues” pass within a few weeks of delivery. If you’re finding that they’re not going away, it may be an indication of something more serious, such as post-partum depression. It’s best to reach out to your health care provider so she/he can give you the help you may need. Read more about the link between pregnancy and emotional health here. Remember that you are going through a major life change and you don’t have to go through it alone. It’s important to take care of yourself as much as possible and to talk to your health care provider and your loved ones about how you are feeling. In the meantime, being active, keeping a regular sleep schedule, and eating healthy foods are other ways to keep your stressors down and even help with your cigarette cravings. You can also consider joining Mother Matters, a 10-week online support group at Women’s College Hospital. It’s a confidential discussion board for women experiencing challenges with mood or with adjusting to life post-partum. Similar to our discussion board, you can share your thoughts and experiences, and get support from other mothers who may be going through the same type of issues. Thanks for reaching out to us, Kelly! Feel free to ask any other questions you may have and keep us updated! :) ~Pregnets Team
