The birth of a baby can be overwhelming and trigger a lot of powerful emotions, ranging from excitement and joy to fear and anxiety. But it can also result in something you might not expect — depression. Most new moms experience postpartum "baby blues" after childbirth, which commonly include mood swings, crying spells, anxiety and difficulty sleeping. Baby blues typically begin within the first two to three days after delivery, and may last for up to two weeks.
But some new moms experience a more severe, long-lasting form of depression known as postpartum depression. Postpartum depression isn't a character flaw or a weakness. Sometimes it's simply a complication of giving birth. If you want to know more about register for our meet-up on PostPartum depression which will be moderated by an experienced professional.

Organizer of Urja Summer Program - Post-partum Stress ManagementUrja means “energy, strength or vigor” in Sanskrit and we @Urja believe that women are already born with this energy to achieve the impossible. But sometimes integrating into a new country or new job or adjusting to the new changes in life might sometimes diminish our potential and we feel lost. Urja is a non-profit volunteer meet-up group that will provide a platform for women to express freely without being judged and to reignite the Urja within them.
