What is Caesarean Depression?

What Is It?

While it isn't talked about much, Caesarean Depression DOES exist. Some women feel as though they have failed, and feel extremely "let down" by the process of having a Caesarean instead of a vaginal birth. Some women actually experience nightmares or anxiety attacks. This type of depression can last for weeks or years. It is important, if experiencing any symptoms of depression after your Caesarean to consult with your doctor.
