Take it seriously. Patients who had pregnancy complications, a difficult delivery or even an uneventful pregnancy with a healthy newborn can go through postpartum depression. It must be taken seriously and not treated as simply the "baby blues". I will share this very important question with experts in diagnosis and counseling for additional information for those concerned about family members' moods after delivery.
Be supportive. Post partum depression is frequently a terribly frightening illness. The mom may hold her baby & have no feelings 4 it. U need 2realize she is very ill & needs intensive psychiatric care & close observation.
