How does PND influence my feelings for my baby?

Here are some of the ways postnatal depression will affect your emotions:

  • Guilt: You’re supposed to be happy about being a mother, but you aren’t.
  • Resentment: You blame the baby for the way you feel.
  • Disconnected: You don’t feel close to your baby.
  • Numb: You don’t always love your baby.
  • Confused: You can’t figure out what your baby needs.
