Are you feeling depressive with kids?

by The Anti Depression Team on

Within the first year of birth, parents endure the continuous cryings and the pain of awakenings through the night; it is not strange for parents to feel stress and depressive. During birth period, it is said that women are likely to become depressive or being admitted to hospital because of that.
Studies found depression rate of 7.53% per 100 mothers and 2.69% per 100 fathers each year. The rates jumped higher on the first year of birth, especially for women.

Depressive parents can unfavourably affect the children’s development and growth and also the couple’s relationship. The potential stress could be due to poor sleep, demand and expectation imposed on them, and adjusting to the change in responsibilities. Sadly, not many programs are
available around that help in depressive issues for parents during pregnancy or after birth.
