Baby Blues

Baby blues is a phenomenon experienced by many new mothers after giving birth. It refers to a short-term period of mood swings, tearfulness, anxiety, and irritability that typically occurs within the first few days after delivery can last for up to two weeks.


The baby blues are believed to be caused by hormonal changes that occur after childbirth, particularly the sudden drop in estrogen and progesterone levels. The stress of adjusting to a new baby, lack of sleep, and other physical and emotional demands of caring for a newborn can also contribute to the baby blues.


It is important to note that the baby blues are a normal and temporary response to the challenges of motherhood. However, if symptoms persist beyond two weeks or become more severe, it may be a sign of postpartum depression, which requires medical attention.
