Tired, petty, a little depressed? No, you are not a "chichiteuse", you just gave birth! The point on the small evils of the post-pregnancy and our advice to put them in their place.

You're back home, your baby in your arms ... exhausted. As if you had run a marathon! Is it really normal to have pain everywhere, to feel weak and empty? Yes, it's banal. Your body has just lived nine months of pregnancy and childbirth is not nothing. He must now return to his previous state and he will need a little time. So, rather than just talking about the great happiness that awaits you with your little one, we will also discuss these physiological upheavals and the inconvenience they cause. Of course, by suggesting ideas to overcome it!

Your hormones make the revolution

  • Some hormones fall sharply, others go wild, and in this post-delivery period, they panic. Stars of pregnancy, estrogens now bow: their reduced rate of 90% immediately after the expulsion of the placenta. Prolactin, the main hormone in milk production, is now stealing the show. Every time your baby pulls on your breast, she knows impressive peaks. And you, you support more or less well these roller coasters! Okay, scientists have never been able to prove that this dance of hormones has any direct effect on physical or moral state. But evidence or not, all women know how much these substances can sometimes influence their mood! The famous baby blues, even if it is not exclusively caused by the fall of estrogen, is probably not completely foreign to him ...

The solutions

  • Apart from waiting patiently for the hormonal storm to calm down, you do not have much to do! Unless you have decided not to breastfeed. You will be prescribed very effective drugs that will block the secretion of prolactin. And if you feel really sad and depressed beyond a few days, it's essential to find someone to trust your feelings for. Your entourage does not understand anything? Why not talk to the midwife who followed you or to the maternity psychologist where you gave birth?
