but if it is lasting and disabling,or recurrent after each delivery, it needs be treated promptly. Mom's mind affects baby directly more than people can think of.

In brief: Rellax and enjoy

Your natural hormones will return to normal after several weeks to months with no further intervention on your part.
If birthcontrol pills are started for contraception, these will also restore normal levels. Post-partum depression is somewhat common, eaily treated, and rarely needs hormonal supplementation. This too shall pass.

In brief: Natural ones

Your body is geared to make appropriate adjustments of all components of what is known as the endocrine system (glands).
Pregnancy related hormones are also important during breast feeding. All hormones will gradually normalize post-partum. One should never take extra hormones, or even certain supplements without having the levels tested in the blood.
