Yes, we are all well aware how women are those who carry the child for nine months in their womb. They feel emotionally connected to those babies. Babies in the womb make some movements, and in that way, it is proven how they communicate with their mothers even before they are actually born. And yes, it is true how this is a hard period of life for all women, but it is also a great one. No man doesn’t have to deliver the baby and go through a hard rollercoaster of emotions, physical changes and hormonal upside downs. But don’t worry dads, we know this is also not easy for you too. For that purpose, we created you a small guide you will enjoy!
You may feel a huge pressure that you need to help everyone in your family. You need to work and to earn for all those needs your newborn and your wife have. Besides that, you constantly worry day and night if everything will go fine. I am sure that you do.
But, how can you understand a postpartum depression? Women go through a lot while they are pregnant. As I have said, there are so many physical and hormonal changes that happen in their body until the baby is being fully developed and ready to meet our world. Try to understand how much pain and ‘hard work’ your wife has every single day. Appreciate how strong and brave woman she is.
But, we have to talk about the postpartum part here, right? What if your wife got a depression once she delivers your beloved angel? Let her talk. She will be very happy to share all of her’s emotions with you. She is full of adrenaline because she suddenly became a mother, but it may happen that her childbirth didn’t go as she has expected. Women feel disappointed in such cases. Be sure that you tell her how a great mother she is.
Besides that, if your wife is breastfeeding, the hormone named prolactin cake make her change the mood literally every few minutes. Be sure that you know how her body is naturally reacting to any threats and the danger. She just wants to feel good, and most of all, she wants the best for her child.
What about her looks? Maybe she is disappointed that her belly doesn’t look the same as it was. Give her some compliments. There is nothing more beautiful than your wife with your baby. Appreciate that.
Postpartum depression may also happen if you both haven’t found yourself in the parent’s roles. But, please, don’t give up. This is just a period. It will pass. You will be fine.
