How Can Chiropractic Care Help With Postpartum Depression?, Manhattan, New York

Pregnancy and childbirth can take a toll on a woman’s mind and body. For many, these changes manifest in postpartum depression. It is a serious psychological condition that requires professional help. Along with talking to your OB-GYN, you may want to consider chiropractic care to help relieve your symptoms. Below is a brief guide to recognizing the issue and how a chiropractor can help.

Signs of Postpartum Depression 

It’s easy to brush off your feelings after pregnancy and wait for them to improve. However, the sooner you recognize a potentially serious condition, the quicker you can get help. Here are a few indicators of postpartum depression:

  • Extreme Fatigue: It’s normal to feel tired, as interrupted sleep is part of having a newborn. But if you can’t rest even when your child is calm, it may be a sign of postpartum depression. Other symptoms include continuous fatigue or regularly oversleeping, which can translate to sluggishness and difficulty functioning. 
  • Fear of Motherhood: During or after pregnancy, it’s normal to worry occasionally about whether you’ll be a good mom. Typically, these doubts pass. If your baby is healthy, having constant anxiety or regret often indicate an underlying issue. Accompanying symptoms might include feelings of worthlessness and guilt. 
  • Loss of Interest in Hobbies You Enjoy: A lack of motivation for or joy in activities you used to find fulfilling may be a red flag. Some women feel less affectionate toward their partner, struggle to lighten their mood, and lose their appetite.

How Chiropractic Care Can Help

Chiropractic care clears subluxations which improve circulation, flexibility, posture, and nervous system function. When the body and mind communicate more effectively, it improves your mood and energy levels. Chiropractic adjustments also relieve pain and muscle tension associated with pregnancy, birth, and caring for a new baby.
