Perhaps you’ve seen a list of symptoms on other health websites, but I doubt you’ve seen one like this. We’re going to talk about the signs of postpartum depression and anxiety, but in “plain mama English”. We won’t use words like hypomania or dysthymia or suicidality or psychomotor agitation — the kind of terms you see elsewhere. We will use the words mom hear in their heads when they think about what the hell is happening … I know this will make sense to you.
