Depression During Pregnancy - Symptoms That You Must Know!

Depression During Pregnancy - Symptoms That You Must Know!

Pregnancy is that wonderful and beautiful phase that most women rejoice about. However, many may find it hard to believe that pregnancy can bring with it a condition known as ‘antenatal depression’. This is a common condition in expecting mothers and should not be ignored.

Depression during pregnancy like regular depression is a clinical condition and requires further investigation and management. Pregnancy is related to the female hormones and therefore, mood swings are common (as during PMS and menopause). However, depressed pregnant women would typically have the following associated symptoms too.

  1. Altered eating habits

  2. Altered sleeping patterns (too much or too less)

  3. Loss of attention/ability to focus

  4. Losing interest in activities which usually interest the person

  5. Feeling very anxious

  6. Constant feeling of sadness

  7. Uncertainty about the future

  8. Feeling of worthlessness

  9. Suicidal tendencies

It has been noted about 25% of women can get depressed during pregnancy for varying periods of time. Some potential reasons for this are as below.

  1. Strained relationships: One of the most important factors for a healthy pregnancy is a happy relationship, not just with the partner, but with immediate and close family members with whom there is a high level of regular interaction.

  2. Work stress: For working women, a stressful office environment could take a toll on their moods.

  3. Previous miscarriages: This can cause anxiety and depression about possible repeat incident.

  4. Potential complications: If the periodic examinations showed up possibility for complications in pregnancy, the chance of depression in the mother increase.

How it affects pregnancy?

A depressed mother would not be able to care for herself and  therefore, the baby may not get adequate nutrition for its development. Additionally, the potential for nicotine and alcohol abuse increases, which also negatively impacts the baby’s growth. There could be low birth weight, premature birth and developmental delays after birth.

How it can be managed?

While the hormonal changes during pregnancy causes mood swings, diagnosing if it is depression is important. A consultation with a psychiatrist may be required for some women.

Some of the options available for treatment include support groups, individual counseling, and medications.

  1. It is important to understand that this is a common condition and you are not the only one going through this. Talking to other women who feel depressed can help in mood uplifting of all involved.

  2. If you are too shy about it, individual counseling could be the next best thing.

  3. Stress management including light exercise, music, meditation, rest, diet, and support from close friends and family are highly recommended.

  4. Since most antidepressants would reach the baby, it is advisable to avoid these less you need them as a last resort.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

I have mouth sore and could not eat any spicy item. If I touch spicy item, it gives burning sensation. As per dentist advice, taking Zycoclocin and stopped eating tobacco and beetulnuts. Is it curable.

Yes it is curable and that too permanently. Don't use much allopathy as you are well aware of its side effects. Consult back with your reports if you have any. Tx.

This is regarding my 15 month old son. And we have a concern as he is not consistent in responding to his name, is not much interested in imitating us or our actions and is not involved in a play with us (much of the time he plays with his toys on his own. He babbles mama, dada, nana. Sometimes whenever his mood but most of the time he is either just playing or sayings some mixed up words like kad kad, kidi kidi, gid gid nd like that. But he does not know recognize to say mama to his mom. Although he speaks tbe word. He is very active, walks on his own since he was 1 year old and also explores his surroundings, has no problem going to new places or travelling, smiles when we smile at him or make some funny face, likes to watch chuchu tv (we do not let him watch more than 30 min a day), imitates only some action such as if he do not know how to play a particular thing in a toay and we demonstrate, he will repeat but shows less interest in repeating our action like bye and hifi.

Dear user, Every child has its own capability and strength. It might be his own comfortability of what he is doing, for more effectively. You all need to interact with him. Much and give more time into him. As such children might be very shy and would love their own company. Don't worry. Make him explore to the surrounding area. And kids around. Children adapt the environment in what they live. I request if such kind of environment is around him then try to change it Regards Dr. Alifiya.

My son is 5 years old and he is suffering from abdomen pain and sometime b omitting. Suggest doctors.

It's better to start with homeopathy from early ages. Because it has no side effects and it cures the disease from its roots permanently and also it boosts immunity and mental n physical growth. Do USG abdomen and pelvis and consult back as soon as possible.

Actually my father is a daily drunkard person. Give me any treatment so that he will leave alcohol and his health will be out of danger. I thought that to give Himalaya live 52 table for his health benefits. Should I do that for him or not?

That won't work for his need. If he wants to and is willing, he can get out of the addiction to alcohol with support. If he thinks he can do it from home, that I agree, may be very difficult. He has developed dependence and tolerance, two factors that work together, to increase our need for the substance and to need more of it for the same pleasure, over time. These effects condition us psychologically and physically, that giving up appears to be a very difficult task. That is why detoxification is recommended for chronic cases to eliminate the physical craving, at least, to start the process of relatively easier recovery. First, it is important to identify why one drinks: it usually has something to do with suppressing some deep-rooted pain. Then you can admit him for detoxification. Get thorough knowledge about the habit, about alcohol, and its mechanisms. Let him attend AA meetings, and if his case is very serious, admit him into a rehabilitation center for at least 6 months. The desire to want to quit is perhaps the most important condition. Giving up the habit is not easily done by oneself: he will need the support and help of a good group and therapist. By the way, he may have many relapses but he should never give up. His perseverance is the key. And the help of your family is absolutely essential to a good resolution. He needs to develop new habits and find new ways of gratification etc. All in all, he needs to be able to abstain from alcohol for at least three years to know that he is relatively safe from alcoholism. There is another drive called the Script Drive, which needs elaborate explanations. After the rehabilitation, if he still finds the urge too strong, then he can be prescribed disulfiram that will cause from mild to severe reaction and sometimes even hospitalization, if he even consumes a tiny amount. Compliance to the prescription is the key for this success. Some centers will come and pick him up when he is drunk because his resistance will be far less but this will require his wife's written consent. Throw in everything you think is possible to get him to rehabilitation.
