New Jersey Offers Free Resources for Women with Postpartum Depression and Other Perinatal Mood Disorders
Among the babies born in the United States every year, 35 percent are born from the beginning of June through the end of September. For every 8 in 10 births, new mothers will experience at least a brief episode of the "baby blues" – feelings of sadness, anxiety, loneliness, or moodiness – within the first few days of giving birth. After a couple of weeks these symptoms typically disappear. However, when symptoms persist or deepen in intensity, they may be a sign of postpartum depression or another perinatal mood disorder.
