Postpartum Depression Or Baby Blues?

There's a difference between postpartum depression and Baby blues. In both cases, Dr. Jila Senemar, Obstetrician and Gynecologist with Baptist Health South Florida, advises consulting with a qualified physician in order to manage the situation. She also says there is a spectrum of these mood disorders after delivering a baby in a postpartum period. In Baby blues they can set in around 2 or 3 days after delivery and they are usually the consequences of the drop in the hormones.
