Hello doctor,

I am 27 years old, and I have 1.6 months old baby. After my delivery, I am getting scared for everything. If something bad had happened to anyone, I am scared to talk with that people am thinking that it will happen to me also. If I love to buy any product while taking am thinking that if I take some bad will happen to me like that I am thinking.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Please do not worry. After delivery, for any woman, it is common to have a hormonal imbalance which could cause anxiety and depression symptoms. More over, the trauma associated with the childbirth also could trigger anxiety and depression. But both of the anxiety and depression conditions are normal and they are for a short time. Your symptoms should clear within three months.
