What are the effects of postpartum depression on the baby?

By Zaira Salvador.
Last Update: 10/22/2018

Indeed, mothers can transfer their state of mind to the baby, causing irritability on him or her. For this reason, it is crucial that the mother is not always alone with the baby. Care from other people is also helpful for the baby to feel good.

Breastfeeding can reduce the impact of postpartum depression, although nursing a baby is not easy when self-esteem is so low. In these cases, antidepressants that are compatible with breastfeeding are recommended.
