Postpartum Depression herb tea
A woman's body undergoes a lot of changes during pregnancy and childbirth. Childbirth takes a huge amount of energy, and after birth, there is a rapid change in body chemistry. Hormonal changes, the physical stress of birth, and lack of sleep, create feelings of being overwhelmed and anxious about the many responsibilities of having a newborn. Symptoms of the baby blues include fatigue, crying, insomnia, anger, feelings of being alone, and the inability to concentrate. These symptoms are usually short-lived. However, if you are not feeling better after 2-3 weeks, or if your symptoms get more severe, you may have serious postpartum depression.
Women who are more inclined to suffer from postpartum depression include: Women with a history of depression or family history of depression. Women with relationship troubles or other stress. Women with an insufficient family/social support system.
Herbs in this blend work together to alleviate nausea; act as a circulatory stimulant; relax peripheral blood vessels; are calming and soothing to the nerves; reduce stress and combat depression; and can also help reduce anxiety, which often accompanies many forms of depression. They are also great blood cleansers and purifiers, act as a nervine for headaches with mood swings and emotional balance and are tonic herbs for nerves and stress.
