The last few months have been very hard I am pregnant with my first baby and have been very depressed. My Doctor assures me it will probably go away when the baby is born, I keep worrying that I will end up with Postnatal Depression. I really need some encouragement is there anyone out there who can help?

Just after having my fourth child and told I have Postnatal Depression, I cant believe it, I was fine on the other 3 and really didn't think this could happen to me. My GP wants me to go on anti depressants, I am scared and have put off making a decision. At the moment I can hardly decide if I want a cup of tea or what to wear, I was always so sure of myself. Any advice gratefully received.

I had my baby in September having suffered two miscarriages previously. It was a difficult pregnancy and I suffered from depression prior to getting pregnant. I was on anti depressants during pregnancy and was good enough moodwise. All I wanted was to breast feed and have skin on skin however I had an emergency c section and baby ended up in neonatal icu so I didn't see her for hours afterwards. I'm back on my previous antidepressants now and not feeling any better. I'm tearful everyday and I can't get out of this black hole. I don't know what to do

Hi, just after birth of my 3rd child. Was hoping I would avoid PND, I had it after my last two and I suffered with anxiety so much last year I was on antidepressants last yr and for 1st 12 wks of this pregnancy. This pregnancy wasn't planned and it took me awhile to come to terms with it. I came off meds and was doing really well. Now I'm back to where I was...I feel numb since the birth and the feel so low, i just feel I can't do this again, as a family we can't do this again, please help

Getting conflicting advice and my head so all over the place don't know what to do. Encouraged to go on anti depressants (I don't want to) I want to go for counselling not encouraged, thought be good idea to go to support meeting to meet other Mums that understand, told I not well enough! surely this would help me?
So hard to make decisions when I find it hard to decide what to wear etc.
Any advice would really help.

Hello, unfortunately I was unable to make the monthly coffee morn in Mahon pt, I would really like to meet other mums who are currently suffering with pnd. Perhaps there are other meetings I am unaware of. I feel isolated!
