Subject: PND post breastfeeding 4 Replies

  • Started by Anonymous on Aug 03, 2019
Hi I’ve recently been diagnosed with PND,I’ve been suffering from anxiety since my daughter was born but when I stopped breastfeeding her two months ago things got way worse. My daughter is now 18months and I feel like I’m going crazy, everything is a big deal, I cry at the drop of a hat, I’m always exhausted and dizzy and I can’t cope with any kind of confrontation no matter how small. Has anyone else ever experienced PND in this way ? I have chosen not to take medication as we are trying for another baby and the clock is against me but I’m afraid that counselling alone will not help. Has anyone chosen to go this route ? Thanks for any help

Hi Mums, First post here,I was just wondering if someone (anyone!)could shed some light as I feel like I'm out of my mind! I have a 1 year old little boy . Since November things haven't been great, mental health wise. I am still suffering (gynaecologically speaking) after a tough birth and I don't think this has helped. My main question is ; have any of your PND symptoms manifested in a physical way as well as mental? I have had constant dizziness the last 8 months , I've seen a neurologist , have had mri , bp monitor fitted... All fine and normal. But this dizziness is constant and is so debilitating . No friends have gone through this so I feel like I'm the only one. I also get this feeling, daily , like a tingling feeling, like water or something crawling on me. Can anyone relate?

I was diagnosed with pnd a few months ago and I'm taking antidepressants and had to get the dose doubled to see if it helps. I find it hard to get through the days on my own with my babies and I don't feel as connected to them as I did a few months back. I feel I'm letting them down and also I find the pnd is driving a wedge between my husband and myself. Every day is a struggle and I find I'm acting I front of people but I side I'm screaming.

Hi, I'm on sertraline 25mg for depression, since 20 weeks pregnancy, now 32 weeks. My doctor says it's safe for the baby, but I've read some confusing info about SSRIs being linked to autism, and although the research is sketchy at best (3% risk instead of 1% risk), I can't get the idea out of my head and I'm so scared and anxious. Has anyone been on similar antidepressants and had a healthy happy baby? Please help. Trying to see GP today but can't get appointment

Hello Ladies, I am a writer and mom of two who had postnatal depression after the birth of my son in Kerry. I am American and back living in the US but still go back and forth from Kerry as my husband is from the Dingle Peninsula. I am working on a book about my experience with PND and am looking for other moms who would be willing to talk with me, either by phone or email. I recently published a feature in the Irish Times that can be seen at the link below. The Ray Darcy show contacted me about my experience and is hoping to put together a radio show if they can find enough mom's to talk about their own experience. Terrifying prospect I know but I think it will help women. Please email me at colleenhennessy5@gmail.com or find me on FB if you are interested. https://www.irishtimes.com/life-and-style/health-family/postnatal-depression-i-should-have-memories-that-don-t-involve-rage-sadness-and-terror-1.3325850 More info about me and my work is on my website at colleenhennessy.com.
