Post-partum blues and depression is said to be caused by a sudden drop of hormone levels following the birth and the overall change in a daily routine a woman can experience when in post-partum. Often, when caring for a newborn baby, a woman's sleep pattern will be disturbed as she cannot get into the deep state and recuperating state that sleep provides.

When a person is deprived of sleep, her overall sense of happiness and joy in life can be greatly disturbed. Hence, the first step in avoiding post-partum blues and depression is to respect one's sense of tiredness and enjoy naps whenever the little baby is sleeping.

It is also her task to free herself from her obsession to have a post partum bluesperfect house and being concerned with what other people might think if they saw her house not being in perfect order.

A new mother has to know that most babies will sleep through the night and eventually she will get her routine and sleep patterns back in order. In the mean time, it is important for her to accept and realize that in the immediate post-partum period, she should allow herself time to rest and recuperate whenever she can. As for the wonder woman myth, she might just decide to give it a rest.

The post-partum blues is a very different condition to post-partum depression where a woman who just gave birth basically cannot function and is experiencing increased anxiety and sadness. Consulting with the proper medical and psychological personal is highly recommended in such conditions.
