Postpartum Depression Victims Trust Dr. Beth Firestein

Posted on Friday, September 10th, 2010 at 4:22 am.

Postpartum depression (PPD), also called postnatal depression, is a form of clinical depression which can affect women after childbirth. Postpartum depression occurs in women after they have carried a child, usually in the first few months, and may last up to several months or even a year. Symptoms include sadness, fatigue, changes in sleeping and eating patterns, reduced libido, crying episodes, anxiety, and irritability. Studies tend to show that  the cause is the significant change in a woman’s hormones during pregnancy. Hormonal treatment has not helped postpartum depression victims, however, many women recover because of a support group or counseling. Dr. Beth Firestein has been counseling women for over twenty years. To learn more about this trusted Northern Colorado psychologist, visit her new website at www.bethfirestein.com.
