Myth: All women feel sad, anxious, or angry after giving birth. The feelings will go away if I just “tough it out” or ignore or deny them.
Fact: Acknowledging how you feel and getting help will speed your recovery.
Myth: Having PPMD means I’m a weak person.
Fact: Strong, intelligent women have PPMD. You didn’t cause the condition by anything you did.
Myth: Having PPMD means I’m a “bad” mother.
Fact: Many women with PPMD think only “bad” mothers ever get angry or have thoughts about hurting themselves or their babies. It may help you to know that these thoughts don’t make a mother “bad.” All mothers do the best they can, and women with PPMD who recognize that these thoughts are harmful don’t act on them.
Myth: If I take medication for PPMD, I can’t breastfeed.
Fact: Medications that are compatible with breastfeeding exist. Check with your caregiver or therapist.
