Hello. I am a girl aged 26 years, have a baby aged 3 months and 26 days. After giving birth I had a tendency to be explosive / emotional. At first I thought it was the baby blues or the result of lack of sleep. But after more than 3 months, my sleep time has also returned to normal, I still have trouble regulating my emotions. Sometimes I am manipulative too. And not infrequently I also experience mood swings, where after crying sadly I smile. Which, if you think about it, is exactly like a character with a mental illness in a movie. The question is, do I suffer or maybe experience symptoms of psychiatric disorders? Can I be indicated to have post partum syndrome? Or what psychological indications may I be currently experiencing? If I have one indication of the disease, what steps should I take? thanks.

Hi Ditaa09 .. Thank you for the question given.


After giving birth, there must be various changes in the mother. These changes include physical changes, new responsibilities of becoming parents, can also affect the mother's psychology such as worries about whether to be a good parent, how to take care of the baby, and so on.


Some of the psychological disorders after childbirth are:


Baby blues syndrome - symptoms such as mood changes, feeling sad, hopeless, restless, easy to cry. feeling anxious, and have sleep disturbances. This situation can occur up to 2 weeks after delivery. If more than 2 weeks post partum depression can be suspected

Post partum depression - almost the same as the baby blues syndrome, but aggravated so that the patient is unable to carry out daily activities. It can occur when there are problems in marriage, depression during pregnancy, unplanned pregnancy, no support from the environment
Post partum psychosis - if the situation is more severe, for example, until the mother experiences hallucinations then this needs to be treated immediately.

If your current condition is very disturbing, there are auditory or visual hallucinations, you are unable to carry out your normal activities, then you should see a psychiatrist. So that doctors can carry out direct examinations and counseling can be carried out. Besides that, it is also necessary to have support from family and husband in taking care of the baby, get involved in positive activities, avoid negative thoughts and unnecessary anxiety.
