Many new mothers experience this.  At times you may fell that you are on an emotional rollercoster.  For most patients this is a short-lived event probably made worse by fatigue, postpartum discomfort, and a perception of being overwhelmed.  These feelings will subside and your attitude will become more positive.  However, for some patients, the depression is more severe, lasting longer than a few days.  If this is the case, please contact our office.
