I am 7 months post partum and in complete denial that I am having post partum depression. But tonight I acknowledge it and I seriously need help. Some days I am just angry that I feel like I am going to burst. It's been affecting my marriage and I feel like a bad mother to our oldest daughter because I am constantly snapping at her. Backstory - My partner is Irish and we had to rush moving to Ireland whilst I was pregnant because of my inconsiderate sister in law who wanted to get married soon so we had to rush everything. I was in major stress organising our big move from one country to another. I felt great the early stages of my pregnancy and I just felt miserable and had a hard time coping the last few months of my pregnancy upto now that I am seven months post partum. I need help. Is there a support group I can go in Cavan town? Thank you.

I see that the support group have a coffee morning every month. I would like to go but not sure what to expect, is there big signs up saying Postnatal Depression Coffee Morning. Can I just pop in for a while? Can I bring my baby?

Subject: He did it for his ex and not me 1 Replies

Hello ladies, I'm just here to have a rant I suppose! So I had my baby 12 weeks ago and my other half has a 5 year old son with his ex. Well I know how silly this is gonna sound but he got her flowers after she had his first son and I was promised I would get beautiful flowers too cos it's something that I kinda became slightly obsessed about. Anyway I had a great labour and I got my amazing beautiful baby boy...but no flowers! He explained he had no money which I understand given his job barely pays the bills but my argument is that he had my card and I obviously wouldn't have even noticed 20 quid gone for them. It's made me feel so worthless and completely not good enough compared, even though I know it's me he wants but I just can't shift it. He doesn't get how he made me feel like he had money to go out for dinner with his friend the night I had the baby. I don't really know what I'm looking for here but I can't get over how this has made me feel and I haven't cried for nearly 3 weeks and now I'm crying over this. He can't fix it now so how do we get passed it? With Valentine's coming up I know he's going to get me flowers that will just cause an argument. I'd love to tell him what he can do but I know I'll never ever forgive him.

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.

I have a beautiful baby girl who is 5 months old, I had a difficult pregnancy & a labour/delivery. Throughout pregnancy my goal was to have everything I needed. No one prepared me for the full aches I carry everyday. I'm. I'm normally a strong person but I'm under so much pressure as a single parent & I feel like I'm suffocating. I did mention PND to my doctor but she said she would put me on medication. That would kill any pride I have left in myself. I really need help but I'm afraid of being labelled & I don't want pity. I don't know where to turn. I want to be happy & myself again but I don't know how. I feel like I have lost time with my beautiful daughter. Please help

my wife and i have a 15 month old baby. Prior to having her we used to fight sometimes but not all the time either. my wife had a very tough labour which was 36 hours long followed by some other complications. anyway home we came happy out. During the first 5/6 weeks everything was fine. We had a fight around this time where my wife told me she is feeling sad and lonely and wants to leave. I ignored this and assumed everything would be ok, or just fix itself. The last month or so i noticed my wife was unhappy. since it was coming up to christmas i didnt want to confront it. Everything changed during christmas when she announced to me that our marriage was over, She was unhappy, felt lonely, so much so that she cried at night and couldnt sleep either. i am in complete shock. Her family are supporting her decision . She is really good with our daughter and is a great mum. I on the other hand am fighting hard to try keep her but at this moment she says its over and there is no more i can do. I have given her some space at home and stayed away for a few nights. She wont talk to me and i feel there is nothing i can do. I have suggested counselling for both of us, or seperate but she refuses saying she does not want to fix things between us. I have not broached the subject that she might have pnd and i have no way of getting her to see her doctor either.. I'm lost.. any advice ? i am getting no help from her family who seem to think i am the root of all her unhappiness. we have been very happy before and i am sure we can be again. she also says she no longer loves me. Also i know i am not a doctor so i cannot be sure she has pnd or not. i am just very very confused and feel like the wrong move now could spell the end of my marriage

Any advice from mothers with PND and how they got through it with their partner? I've been diagnosed with PND and prescribed medication but I'm reluctant to take it. I'm waiting for my first counselling session. Im really feeling the strain on my relationship at the moment we've had a rough year and lost loved ones through in baby's arrival and now pnd we're having a stressful time. I'm tired all the time and struggling to keep up with the house and my 2 kids I'm emotional and feel like I just need a break to recentre I'm doing my best but my partner and I just seem to be fighting I don't think he understands how I feel when I try and talk to him about it he goes in to solution mode but it's not what I need. for example he's a few things on over the next 4 days and is pulled away so I'm left to manage the 2 kids alone for these 4 full days and nights. he's frustrated because he needs to go and can't see why I don't call in friends or family to come down but the plans he made are last minute and people have made plans and it's only 2 weeks before Christmas people have a lot on. Rather then understand he's frustrated with me. I am equally frustrated with him because he doesn't seem to see how hard this is on me. I feel lost and really lonely any advice on getting through this.
