The word “motherhood” evokes only positive emotions. In fact, according to statistics, about 75% of women experience so-called “baby blues”, another 13% – postpartum depression. These phenomena have both emotional and physical basis associated with a significant reduction in hormone level in the body, which leads to the production of neurotransmitters – serotonin and dopamine.

Among the symptoms, we may feel depression, mood instability, loss of interest in everything that we were interested in before.

The author of two books about women’s health, well-known gynecologist Olga Bilokin emphasizes that ” ideal mothers” exist only on social networks, and advises:

• ask for support from loved ones;

• discuss everything that worries;

• eat healthy food, because it has a direct impact on mood and well-being;

• analyze and record your thoughts;

• add more fresh air and sunlight 🙂

In the end, the main advice of all experts is: allow yourself to feel this state and give the body as much time to recover as needed 🙂
