The Baby Blues or Postpartum dysphoria is an emotional state of sadness that can appear between the third and fifth day after childbirth. It is seen in 70% of mothers following the significant biological changes that occur before, during and after childbirth and with the effort to adapt to new motherhood habits, such as breastfeeding and bonding with and taking care of the baby. The symptoms of Baby Blues can be very variable, from sadness, crying easily, concern about the care of the baby, insecurity or anxiety. “It is not abnormal to feel sad. In fact, having a child, especially the first, is a very important life change,” says Dr Susana Andrés, clinical psychologist at the Hospital Clínic.
