I was a young mom when I had my son. I just turned twenty years old and was about to start my junior year of college. I gave birth to Colton via c-section in the beginning of August and developed an infection which left me feeling even more under the weather. To top it all of, we moved to Nebraska only a few weeks after the birth and I started back to school part time.
We lived in married student housing.
My husband was a busy economics major and baseball player which meant late nights and when the season started, he was gone several days at a time.
The only time I went out of the apartment was for school and grocery shopping. I think in my circumstance a bout of depression was inevitable, whether it was post-partum or just being secluded as a new mom while everyone my age had places to go and people to see.
I got over my short case of the blues without any help, but I would encourage you to seek help through your family doctor or even talk about it with family or friends. Stay strong!
