Drastically fluctuating hormone levels can lead to substantial mood swings. Depression can lead to many-fold problems during pregnancy, labour and or post delivery. Depressed women are more prone to anemia, back pain, urinary tract infections and infections of the genital tract. A depressed woman in labour has a higher chance of having a caesarean section. The post postpartum period becomes very depressing for the rest of the family. Watch this video to understand how depression can affect pregnancy.
