Postpartum Depression Caregiver Tips
As is the case with major depression and other depressive disorders, those who care for sufferers of postpartum depression are at risk for developing depression themselves. Caregivers for someone with postpartum depression should consider these tips to help the sufferer and themselves to deal with the disorder:
- Learn as much as possible about the disorder.
- Do what you can to help. Find out what needs to be done around the house, and volunteer to do some of it–laundry, dishes, running errands, taking care of the baby while mom sleeps, etc. Sometimes the best thing you can do is just be around, to do the little things as they come up or just to listen.
- Don’t expect the sufferer to simply get better on their own.
- Seek out appropriate professional treatment for the sufferer.
- Do everything possible to support the sufferer in the pursuit of treatment.
- Be supportive of the sufferer and acknowledge any improvements.
- Find a support group for caregivers.
