Can you tell me more about post-natal blues?

Post-natal blues is common and unrecognised most times. I think it helps to learn to let go a little, ie. take mothering one step at a time, let someone else looks after the baby on and off, and go out of the house often!

You will find that with the second baby onwards, mums generally are get better very quickly. I think it comes with confidence. So, I think assurances helps and it is transient. Medically, as doctors, we step in when there is clear post-natal depression. – A lady ob-gyn in KL
