Here are a list of symptoms from the NHS Direct Online Health Encyclopaedia
  • constant tiredness or exhaustion,
  • sleeping problems,
  • lack of appetite,
  • disinterest in new baby,
  • lack of motivation,
  • panic attacks,
  • feelings of isolation,
  • sense of feeling overwhelmed,
  • loss of sex drive,
  • guilt, and
  • physical signs of tension, such as headaches, stomach pains or blurred vision.

Some of these symptoms are unavoidable with a new baby. If you persistently experience more than one of these symptoms, which may also include feelings of anger, please contact your early childhood nurse, doctor, or a counsellor as soon as possible.

Well done on a nice blog Carolyn Gibbs. I was searching for information on depression treatment and ran across your post Symptoms - not exactly what I was looking for related to depression treatment but a very interesting read all the same!
