Sleep deprivation: After giving birth to a baby, it becomes difficult to sleep well because you will have to feed the baby and take care of it. Along with that, their sleep cycle is very different from yours. All of these factors contribute to sleep deprivation which could eventually cause postpartum depression. Anxiety: If you are constantly anxious about how to take care of the baby, if you are looking after the right way, all of this could lead to depression. The constant thought of whether you are doing enough for your child could also be a cause of postpartum depression. Lack of support: After a mother gives birth to her child, especially if it is her first child, she would need the support of her loved ones and it is important that she receives support. If she is alone in caring for the child, it could affect her mental health, which could eventually lead to postpartum depression.
