Just wondering what support groups are available in Limerick area. Playgroups aren't ideal as by the time I get my toddler there she is tired and I'm just shadowing her from trying to go out door so doesn't give me chance to talk to other moms, feel so isolated!

Have had terrible Post natal Depression for the last months and really worried that it will have an effect on my baby. there are days that I just cant smile and others where I cant stop crying. I feel so guilty and am so afraid that this will effect him in some way.

I have two kids,and after having our 2nd I didn't have the same instant feelings as first time round. She had severe colic and I literally slept on a couch with her on my chest for 3 months straight. Things all improved and I am so lucky with them both. But for the majority of the last 12 months (she's now 2) I am feeling extremely low, no motivation, suffer mood swings and find myself being so irritated by things that have never bothered me before. I also get bad cabin fever being at home and find my days so mundane, I used to be really outgoing and bubbly but feel like a totally different person. Is it possible this could be postnatal depressed so late on?? I love my girls, but feel like I want to escape most days and am slowly crumbling.

I am a new mom the past 2 months. Single mother, as father refuses to believe it's he's child and refuses to take DNA test. Currently living back at home with my parents trying to find a place to live on the HAP scheme, not having any luck. All this while being very depressed and upset. Easily the hardest thing I have ever gone through and still going through. On medication but doesn't seem to be working. Will it ever stop 😔

I had my baby 2 years ago, I never really accepted I had PND until he was 1. It was an incredibly difficult time as he had reflux, a problem with his neck after the long labour and we also moved house. I blamed all of these things and thought it would pass.
I feel like I never got the bonding time with him and still struggle to enjoy my time with him. It can feel like a effort some of the time. How do I move forward and make up for lost time ? I don't have much support around me, my husband is amazing ! My friends all had babies around the same time and had lovely experiences which made me back away from them. I don't know how to move forward and let go of the feelings I have. I have a older teenager too and it was just such a lovely experience having her. I know it shouldn't feel like this and it makes me so sad to not have the same feelings this time.
