On ‘Psychology Behind the Headlines,’ hosts Patricia Wu, Jessica Reyes, and guest therapist Jenna Watson discuss warning signs of postpartum depression and the importance of early intervention.

Signs to Watch For

Key signs of postpartum depression in a new parent include persistent sadness, lack of joy, disconnection from their baby or loved ones, and hopelessness.

Beyond Baby Blues

Feeling emotional after having a baby is normal – “baby blues” typically last a few weeks. If sadness or emotional distress lasts longer, seeking professional help is crucial.

Community Matters

Jenna stresses how important it is to check in with friends and family who have recently had a baby, offering them support and encouraging them to get professional help if they’re struggling.
