Third Day Baby Blues
This is a brief period of distress, or the “baby blues” as they are more commonly known, and effect around 80% of women.
The baby blues commonly occur between the 3rd and 10th day after childbirth. Although symptoms are similar to postnatal depression and anxiety (PNDA) they usually subside within a few days.
Talking with a perinatal psychologist or psychiatrist can be helpful in providing psychological support during this vulnerable period.
