Postpartum Depression Causes

There are many causes of postpartum depression. Some of the feelings that are common with this condition can be caused by:
 
  • Hormonal changes
  • Anxiety about taking care of a new baby
  • Exhaustion from labor and lack of sleep
  • Feeling overwhelmed with life's circumstances
  • Having little or no help during the first few days after giving birth
  • An emotional let-down following the experience of childbirth
  • Previous mental illness or depression.
     
If you have previously been treated for depression, or have experienced postpartum depression before, you are at higher risk for developing postpartum depression.
