It can be a difficult transition from living a life when you only had to care about yourself and in less than one day you’re caring for two, you and your newborn. Understandably, after you give birth there may be some feelings of excitement but some sadness. Commonly, many women go through postpartum depression after giving birth and our companions can help.
Lower your chances of postpartum depression.
A randomized, controlled study reported by PubMed.gov released that postpartum depression and companionship can make all the difference in a new mother’s life after giving birth. The study took 189 nulliparous women laboring. 92 of these women were given sealed envelopes that would tell them if they would receive additional companionship from a companion after giving birth. The results were pretty astounding and obvious that the support obtained from a companion attained higher self-esteem scores and lowered both anxiety and postpartum depression ratings just six weeks post delivery.
