Baby Blues

So, you have now had your baby after what seems like 9 long months and you are feeling kind of odd.  Perhaps you are feeling;

  • emotional, irrational or overwhelmed

  • tearful (without knowing why)

  • irritable and moody

  • A little down

Don’t worry its probably Baby blues.  Baby blues happens to 80 % of women after child birth, because of the huge change in your hormones. The feelings for most women pass in a few days but if they continue contact your GP or health visitor.  Sometimes it helps to talk to a friend or someone who has had a baby about how you are feeling. Sometimes having a rest from lots of visitors is the answer or simply asking someone to help with your baby so you can have rest will do the trick.  Remember for most women it is part of having a baby and quite normal.
