Health in pregnancy and the early years
It's completely normal to feel teary or anxious in the first couple of weeks after having a baby. However, if these emotions don't subside you could be suffering from postnatal depression.
It's a common problem and affects more than 1 in every 10 women. It also affects fathers and partners too.
With the right support, which can include self-help strategies, you can make a full recovery.
