It is normal to feel very tired in the months following your baby's birth

Having a baby is a significant life-changing event, which affects women and their partners in different ways. Sometimes women experience low mood and may feel more irritable due to lack of sleep, when caring for their newborn baby. Feeling this way can be completely normal and is not necessarily a sign of postnatal depression.

Depression is when you have feelings of being unhappy and they just do not go away after a few days but last for weeks or months.
