Ask any mother about the first month or two after birth and she would most likely say that it was a blur. Ask her if she enjoyed that time with either her baby or her family, and more often than not she will describe her experience as mixed - joyful yet tiring, exciting yet draining, happy yet exhausting. In some extreme instances she may express guilt about bouts of depression.
