    It is common that you feel anxiety, trouble sleeping, mood swings after the labor and delivery. It can occur since your hormone levels go up and down after the delivery. If you found that these symptoms last longer than 2 weeks then you may have postpartum depression.

    Typically the PPD patients are treated with antidepressants. You can don't need to consult any postpartum depression counselors if you are following these natural therapies.
