Blues del puerperio

There is a fantasy that is installed around the period after the birth of the baby, as if it were honey on flakes to the mother. However the surge of emotions passed the account in the puerperium, so much more common than you think

Expert: Nicol Mendoza-Yanez, Clinical Psychologist

While, waiting the arrival of the child is often a process full of hope for the women who, above all, what he had dreamed as well. It is real that, upon being faced with his new role once born your baby's emotions begin a dance on the spiral, which, not infrequently, lead to experience feelings that not the same mothers understand.

The excitement around the arrival of a baby is very high. The physical changes, as the pregnancy progresses, we're making getting more conscious about this new event in our life.

Usually, the children that have been expected by their father and mother, existed before even being in the womb. Mothers and fathers often imagine how it's going to be, what things will be like, who is going to look like. They are part of the fantasies and illusions that are woven of this new little person.

However, as it approaches the hour of his arrival, the nervousness increases. Especially for someone who has lived the process “in the flesh”, that is to say, the mother. Tend to get more anxious, they begin to circle around the fears and fantasies associated with it (usually, by a subject of culture) to situations that complicated: how much it's going to hurt, that the baby is born healthy, that the labor is not so terrible. A series of myths that reinforce this anxiety.

Finally the baby arrives

And even when the whole event has elapsed with normality, the wife-mother receives a torrent of emotions that tends to “descolocarla”. Joy, fear, melancholy. Accompanied by a body, which is laid back and looking for a return to the previous state.
It seems that we have put a few lenses and now everything looks different. Which, as any vital change significant, intimidated.

It is for this reason that, in many cases, immediately after childbirth appear episodes of cries that “it is not known very well why they have”. Mood swings and tendency to irritability. All this as a normal part of the process of “recovery post-delivery”, nothing that should result or be assessed as pathological.

There are those who experience it with greater intensity, other mothers who do not occurs. And everything must be seen in context. It is important that the same women-mothers know that this is not a Depression Postpartum (DPP), since this is research around the 4th week of life extrauterina/the baby and presents, besides, other symptoms (feelings of guilt, inability to maternar, discomfort disease around the body, etc.).

The “Blues in the Postpartum period”, as defined, is a passenger. And corresponds to the event triggered the birth of the baby. Being “weepy” is not the impossible. And it is relevant that the immediate surroundings is present and available. More than giving advice, being available to what that woman-the mother deems it necessary for herself and her baby at that time.
