Having a baby can stir up a multitude of powerful emotions, from excitement and joy to fear and anxiety. It can also result in depression. It is common for most new moms to experience “baby blues” that typically begin the first two to three days after delivery. These may only last up to two weeks. Some new moms experience a more severe, long-lasting form of depression known as postpartum depression.
