Infographic: How to overcome the stigma of postpartum depression

Last month, actress Hayden Panettiere talked about her struggles with postpartum depression on national television. The 26-year-old appeared on “Live! With Kelly and Michael” and admitted that the birth of her daughter, now a year old, has wreaked emotional havoc on her life.

“It’s something that’s completely uncontrollable. It’s really painful, and it’s really scary, and women need a lot of support,” Panettiere said.

This week, news broke that Panettiere had checked into a treatment center for professional help.

Communicators can use this infographic to educate people about the emotional fragilities that can occur after a woman gives birth. “Baby blues” are a milder form of PPD and can last up to two weeks. Women who have prolonged symptoms should seek professional help.

Signs of postpartum depression include:

  • Insomnia

  • Loss of appetite

  • Intense irritability and anger

  • Decreased libido

  • Feelings of shame or inadequacy

  • Overwhelming fatigue

It’s interesting to note that PPD affects as many as 10 percent of fathers in the first year, too.
