It's not just being sad after the baby is born. That happens to a lot of women because of hormones, and they don't have PPD. Depression is so much more than that. It's not wanting to take care of yourself of your child, changes in habits, feeling overwhelmed to the point of insanity. If you as a new mom ever hear voices or have the urge to harm yourself or your child, call 911 immediately.
