A few days after your baby is born you may become emotional, tearful and feel down. The ‘baby blues’ as they’ve become known is completely normal and caused by hormone changes in your body as a result of the pregnancy and labour.
Throughout your pregnancy and during labour your body is flooded with oestrogen and progesterone. These hormones will drop back to normal levels around twenty-four hours after your baby is born, and can cause a dramatic shift in your mood.
Baby blues will pass after just a few days so try not to worry if you are weepy and tired. It may help to talk to your partner about how you are feeling, and have lots of cuddles with your new baby to make you feel better.
