Motherhood is the most precious phase in a mother's life but a recent study shows that 20% mothers suffer from depression and stress following their child's birth.
Around 29,000 new mothers or care takers of children aged two years or younger were asked about their immediate experience after baby birth and the results showed that most of them had stress and anxiety during that period of time. They actually hunted for help to come out of that difficult phase.
According to the board president of ACT's post natal depression support group PANDSI, Marian Currie, postnatal depression is an all-embracing problem and therefore it is important that experts find out a quick and effective way out to it. This should be ''kept on their agenda''.
Many times, it is basically our society that gives birth to different kinds of illnesses and problems but then there are circumstances and situations in which a society only offers the best solution.
In case of post natal depression, it is important to talk. The more awareness we make about it, quicker we tend to resolve the issue. This way more and more women will feel comfortable and they would without any hesitation come forward to share their views.
Communication is a strong remedy for treating different kinds of problems; post natal depression is one of them.
