Anxiety postpartum: hello ~ If this is your first baby, anxiety is very much the norm with a new Mom, because this is a very precious package and it does not come with assembly instructions, and now all that reading during pregnancy is having to be enacted. Get as much support as you can from Mom, Dr and nurses and never be scared to shout for help. Be careful this is not a prodrome to depression.Get help early if so
