Hormonal Changes in Postpartum Depression
Frankie Powell, Patient Care Supervisor of Labor & Delivery at Homestead Hospital, explains the hormonal changes in postpartum depression: “When you become pregnant, you have an increase in the hormones progesterone and estrogen, and when you deliver the baby, you have a dramatic drop in those hormones, and that can cause a chemical imbalance in your brain.”
She also says it takes one to two weeks for a normal transition, and if you notice that isn’t happening, you have to seek medical consultations.
