3. They’ve lost interest in what they used to enjoy.
If someone you know to be a movie buff or a yoga lover no longer has an interest in the things that they really enjoyed before giving birth, it could be a symptom of postpartum depression. Though it might take time for them to resume activities after giving birth, if they clearly do not get pleasure when doing what they used to love doing, it could be a cause for concern.
4. They lose their appetite or eat too much.
“I didn’t have an appetite. I would go 2 days without a bite of food, and you know how big of a deal food is for me.” — Chrissy Teigen
After childbirth, if a woman experiences a significant change in her appetite, it could be something to worry about. She could have no appetite and refuse to eat or she could be swallowing meal after meal. As a result, she could lose a lot of weight or gain a lot of weight, which would not be healthy for her physically and psychologically.
