    Yes, please ask for help. Postpartum depression is a natural side effect after childbirth and not something new mothers should be ashamed of.
    Also, depression is sneaky and lies to those who have it. You might only think you’re feeling down and not see the monster eating at your self confidence. If you know of a new mother, be aware of the possibility of postpartum depression, and lead her to the help she needs.
