Again, these ugly signs can be experienced as a result of an adjustment in levels of a particular element or substance in the brain which misrepresents what is real, thereby exposing both the mother and baby to danger. We can still go on and on to explain these changes and their effects. Another point here is that these adjustments originate from an obvious reduction in the reproductive gland such as the eggs. Another is an indication of a reduced level of hormone especially when she is close to giving birth. Therefore, it is said that these immediate adjustments in the progesterone have revealing effects on the substance in the body that carries a signal from one nerve cell to another. To add to these points, social issues that culminate a woman’s pregnancy can result to mental instability in the life of that pregnant woman, even after delivery. Now, factors like; mothers who are not married, surgical operation, all forms of natal complications, past history of mental sickness, previous record of fear and hopelessness, previous record of mental or emotional disorders, a recent event of loss of self-worth and sadness after child birth, past event of sexual exploitation are enough to expose a pregnant woman to psychological disorder.
Therefore, the root of the matter is that knowledge and consciousness about such distressing condition is not adequate and this increases the mental suffering of the pregnant women. The other side of the consequence is that mothers immediately after child birth will start having a feeling of blame as to the inability to be in charge of their harmful depressed condition. In this situation, they may not understand that it is a condition that is trying to twist their perception about the world. Psychological disorder has it’s origin from the deformity of the brain but this can be successfully controlled in whichever ways of medical treatment or through the treatment of physical or mental illness. Having discovered the causes of these symptoms and their effect, it is therefore very important to report any form of disorder to the appropriate health workers in order to ensure a quick solution. Karthika visited her doctor who intervened by helping her deal with her emotional and mental problems. He therefore guaranteed her healing and then he advised her on symptoms to observe. Thank goodness her post natal depression and mental illness stopped few weeks later and she began to feel the way a new mother is supposed to feel.
