Sometimes it can begin during pregnancy but it would only be called post natal depression if it continues after you have had a baby. PND is very similar to ordinary depression, you experience similar symptoms as above and added feelings of being tearful, anxious, tense, lonely, trapped and exhaustion. Doctors think that the sudden changes in hormone level around the time of birth or an experience of a traumatic birth and upheaval of a new baby can affect a woman. In the first instance you need to consult your GP and speak to your health visitor.
