Oh the Baby Blues. Nature’s present to new mothers.
I do not know a single mother who has not found herself at some point between days 3 & 10 post birth, sitting on her kitchen floor crying over spilt breast milk.
So what is actually going on? Well your oestrogen levels have had a dramatic drop post birth and this as well as other life-changing factors can lead to wanting to cry (a lot), feeling anxious or irritable, fatigue or insomnia, sadness, lack of concentration and a general sense of overwhelm.
