When It's More Than Just the Baby Blues

"It's normal for women to have the 'baby blues' up to two weeks postpartum. It isn't abnormal to be teary, moody and even tired. If those feelings persist coupled with more extreme symptoms including a fear of harming yourself of your baby, you must contact your doctor immediately!" C. Piccone - Labor and Delivery Nurse
