Postnatal Depression

There’s quite nothing like having a baby. They say having your baby in your arms for the first time gives you much needed strength and makes you feel complete.
But the "having a baby" package doesn't always come with fun and games alone. Postnatal depression is one of those things that can blemish the experience of being a new parent. We might find it difficult getting used to the new arrival and the changes taking place in our life. We now have a little person depending on us 24/7 and in a natural way, we love just that, being terrifyingly responsible for a fragile tiny somebody for years to come. Little by little, we enjoy being parents and we get to love the changes in our life. We can’t even remember our life before and can’t even imagine our life any other way.

love lifeWhen we, as new parents, sometimes say "My life, as I knew it, has completely vanished!", we're bound to find tiny fingerprints all over the magic wand.

When you plan on having children, you must expect one certainty: things will change. In many ways, for the better, but sometimes for the worse.

Having children is one of those great things that help you know yourself and your partner a lot deeper. Many things will be different, from the day to day routine and the night to night routine, (oh, yes, these will most certainly change!), to locked in weekends and budget priorities. No more going out socialising like you used to, no more a last minute weekend in the Lakes, like you used to, no more walking the dog just for 10 minutes. Kiss goodbye to the marvelous treadmill in the gym (at least for a while) and, no, you can't use the jumbo packs of nappies for weight lifting.
