Although it’s normal to go through a transition period of having some ” baby blues ” in the first few weeks after having a baby, any feelings of depression, mood swings, or irritability and anxiety that interfere with a woman’s daily life beyond two weeks postpartum are not normal. THE MOTHERS ACT. The Melanie Blocker Stokes MOTHERS Act legislation sponsored by U.S.
Senator Robert Menendez (D-NJ) to combat postpartum depression became law as part of landmark health insurance reform that passed Congress on March 21, 2010. The legislation establishes a comprehensive federal commitment to combating postpartum depression. A very, very rare and extremely severe form of PPD is called postpartum psychosis.
The symptoms include confusion, delusions, hallucinations and paranoia. If this is observed in a mother, the baby. Postpartum depression can definitely affect the relationship between the mother and the child. The mother’s depression can make it difficult for the child and mother to bond.
The mother and child bond is an incredibly important part of a child’s early development, as it can have an impact on the child’s ability to engage in healthy relationships in the future. The public is supposed to believe that because new mothers are screened for a specific condition called “postpartum depression” (which has as its main treatment, drugs), does not mean that they will A) be prescribed them, or B) won’t be warned that the drugs prescribed to help them could in fact result in worsening depression, psychosis, mania, suicidal and homicidal ideation, stillbirths or birth defects. This law was advocated for by the former first lady, Mary Jo Codey, who herself had suffered from postpartum depression.

In addition, new mothers must be. Postpartum depression is defined as an episode of major depression which is associated with childbirth.
It has been estimated that PPD affects nearly 15 to 20% of new mothers. However, it’s very likely that the condition is under-diagnosed and under-treated, which means that postpartum depression statistics might not be accurate. Postpartum depression is a disease and is never the fault of the mother nor is it an indication of their worthiness to be a mom.
Healing is available for postpartum depression, and no mother should feel shame for pursuing treatment for this medical condition. It is real, it is common, and it is treatable. Mothers with postpartum depression can usually continue to breastfeed. Healthcare providers should work with mothers to ensure they receive appropriate treatment, support, and medications that are safe to use while breastfeeding.
The Melanie Blocker Stokes MOTHERS Act is designed to help new mothers get through postpartum depression and to help scientist get to the bottom of it. Education, support services and research – those are the three areas in which the MOTHERS Act will begin building what will hopefully become a long-lasting and effective federal initiative to combat this debilitating.
