How To Deal With Postpartum Depression?

How To Deal With Postpartum Depression?

If you’re a new mother, chances of you going through postpartum depression are one in four and statistics report that more than 50% of Indian mothers experience it. When your life gets a whole new meaning with parenthood, feelings of sadness, anxiety, and low energy can be somewhat perplexing. That's when you know you are experiencing postpartum depression, and you're not the only one.

What is postpartum depression?
Often termed as ‘Baby Blues,’ which is a milder version of depression, postpartum depression (PPD) affects new mothers, weeks after childbirth. It is a long-lasting bout of severe depression which directly affects the mother’s health and mental condition. It can manifest in the form of sadness, severe mood swings, bipolar disorder, change in appetite, little energy, nonexistent libido among other symptoms.

It’s often overlooked as a sign of weakness and fear to embrace parenthood, but it’s a bit more severe than that, though curable with proper psychotic treatment. Doctors believe that the depression is caused mostly due to massive hormonal imbalance during pregnancy, and also due to a considerable change in the lifestyle before and after childbirth. The latter sometimes affects fathers as well, as a result of which about 10% fathers experience PPD in their lifetime.

Risk factors involved

Postpartum depression can accentuate suicidal thoughts, mostly in the mother. As stated earlier, it affects the mother’s mental state and in many cases, leads her to commit suicide, unless treated with utmost love and care. Furthermore, statistics show that PPD affects many mothers from a low socioeconomic background and they may be 11 times more likely to experience PPD than mothers having a better background.



Treatment

Since it is a type of depression, most cures can be obtained by therapy rather than a mainstream process using medication. Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and interpersonal therapy (IPT), are two of the most popular types of treatment that have found the most success among patients. Some doctors opine that PPD and major depressive disorder (MDD) are different variants of the same depression, and hence, medicate patients accordingly.

One way of handling postpartum depression is by psychotherapy (which is not as menacing as it sounds!), where the mother, overwhelmed by the new tasks of motherhood, can share her thoughts with a professional psychiatrist and get the pressure off her chest.

Postpartum depression is an underrated issue, which has the potential to ruin a new mother’s life and can affect the baby’s growth as well. Thus, to live the subsequent years depression-free, it is essential for the mother to go through therapy if the symptoms are observed.

8 Risks Associated With Attachment Disorder

8 Risks Associated With Attachment Disorder

While most children share a strong bond with their parents, especially the mother, some infants are unable to establish lasting relationships with their parents or caregivers. This is known as attachment disorder. It is a rare yet serious condition as it affects the child’s relationships at a later stage and also triggers delinquent behavior. Children, who have been abandoned, orphaned or are victims of abuse are the most vulnerable to this condition.

What causes attachment disorder?
The exact cause for attachment disorder is not yet understood. However, researchers have put together a number of viable hypotheses for this. One such hypothesis suggests that when needs of a child are ignored or when he begins to feel unwanted, the child begins to expect hostility, negativity and rejection. This is a learnt response and the child begins to feel that his needs are unwanted. With time, these responses make the child untrusting and he withdraws into himself to avoid social contact. This affects the development in the brain and causes attachment problems that affect the child’s personality and future relationships.



Risks associated with it
Some children are at a higher risk of attachment disorder than others. This includes

  1. Children living in orphanages or other such institutes
  2. Children whose caregivers are changed frequently
  3. Children who have had prolonged hospitalization
  4. Neglected children
  5. Children who have suffered from physical, sexual or verbal abuse
  6. Children living in extreme poverty
  7. Children born to parents with mental conditions or anger management problems
  8. Children born to a mother suffering from post partum depression

Symptoms
There are two types of attachment disorders; inhibited and disinhibited.

  1. Inhibited attachment disorder: Children suffering from inhibited attachment disorder are likely to be:
    • Detached
    • Withdrawn
    • Unresponsive to comforting ie. they shun all types of relationships and generally do not get along with their peers or caregivers.
  2. Disinhibited attachment disorder: On the other hand, children suffering from disinhibited attachment are likely to:
    • Seek attention
    • Display inappropriate behavior
    • Frequently break social boundaries
    • Be inappropriately familial and attached to selective figures.

Additionally, children suffering from either type of attachment disorder are manipulative, destructive, moody and lack compassion and remorse.
Effects of attachment disorder
If not managed properly in its early stages, this disorder can continue into adulthood. This leads to:

  1. Relationship problems with peers, friends and family members
  2. Low self esteem
  3. Depression
  4. Anger management
  5. Academic problems
  6. Unemployment
  7. They are also at a high risk for drug abuse and alcohol addiction

6 Amazing Ways To Manage Stress

6 Amazing Ways To Manage Stress

Our days are filled with endless tasks that pave the way for stress to become part and parcel of our lives. And when left unmanaged, stress can not only interfere with your mood, but impair productivity and immune function as well. Stress is a natural response activated in the brain, excessive stress can cause damage to the mental health and increases the risks of various diseases, such as headaches, migraines, heart attacks, heartburn, constipation, etc.

Therefore, managing stress is of great importance and can be achieved easily if you carefully incorporate the following stress busters into your everyday life.

  1. Be more active: Stress is known to increase the level of stress hormones such as cortisol in the body. And it is by indulging yourself in more and more physical activities that these hormone levels can be maintained at desired levels.
  2. Eat healthy: A nutritious and balanced diet has an important role to play in stress management. Lack of adequate nutrition can make you feel physically and emotionally drained and difficult to deal with the stressors. Completely avoiding tobacco, alcohol, and caffeine can actually help in reducing stress levels.
  3. Ensure plenty of sleep: While stress is known to interrupt a sound sleep, similarly, the lack of proper sleep is also responsible for making you feel stressed. Having a proper sleep is not only necessary for keeping the biological clock of your body on track, but also for feeling fresh and relaxed. Therefore, to deal with stress, try to have an uninterrupted sleep.
  4. Consider meditating: Mindful prayer and meditation help both the mind and the body to focus and relax. Practicing meditation on a regular basis can not only make you feel more focused and develop new perspectives, but also help the body in releasing the emotions that are responsible for causing stress.
  5. Give yourself a break: No matter how difficult it may seem, you must learn to give yourself some time off from all the stressors to manage stress. Whether it's the work pressure in your office or some household responsibilities, you have to step away from it for a few minutes at least which can eventually make you feel less overwhelmed.
  6. Maintain social support: Simply talking to someone can also help you manage your stress better. Sharing your feelings and concerns with a friend can either help in releasing the built-up tension from within or keep you distracted from the stressors. Therefore, next time you feel stressed, talk to someone whom you trust and who can validate and understand you.

Stress refers to the body's way of reacting to any threat, demand, and change. And to keep stress at bay from interrupting your mental as well as physical health, don’t hesitate to talk to a psychiatrist, if necessary.

Based on your clinical history, your doctor plans the type of medicine and it's dose and duration. For first episode of anxiety/ depression/ panic, the usual maintenance phase is 6 months of asymptomatic period, after which medicines can be gradually tapered. But treatment may need to continue longer depending on severity and frequency of episodes. Treatment for Recurrent Depressive Disorder, psychotic disorders, Bipolar Affective Disorder and OCD usually lasts for much longer. To monitor any potential side effects and to take any decision to change medication or stop them, several factors have to be taken in account for which regular follow up with your psychiatrist is important. For second opinion, seek a proper consultation with another psychiatrist and take along your previous prescriptions.
