Self Esteem and Postpartum Blues

With the birth of the baby the focus switches from the mom to the baby. This frequently causes the mom to experience feelings such as being part of the background, feelings of inadequacy, feelings of guilt, mourning for the “old you”, unhappiness over your appearance, and lack of support. Things for them to do include:



  • Getting out of the house.

  • Asking for help with the house.

  • Asking for help with the baby or other children.

  • Talking about their feelings of not being appreciated.

  • Looking their best so they can feel their best.

  • Getting active.

  • Making some time for themselves.

  • Getting together with other new moms they know and comparing their new “way of life”.
