Hi ladies. I'm a mom of two, a little girl now 6 and little boy 4months old. I suffered so badly with my first and it wasn't until she was 6months old that I sought help from my gp and realised it was PND. We planned baby number 2 and I had a plan in place with my gp should this happen again and sure enough those feelings began to come back and I started on Strenaline and was doing fantastic. I felt I was being very pro active with my mental health and swore for the sake of my first born I would ensure I got help as soon as I noticed any signs. Now I'm beginning to feel very low, uninterested again (even though I'm on the max dose) and i feel all this is due to me having to return to work the end of next month. I dont feel mentally ready to juggle all this and go back to work and leave my kids, it's making me feel so so anxious. Any mom's in the same position?

Hi, this has to be the hardest thing i have done. I had my baby boy 21 days ago and now on medication. I have support but my brain won't let me relax. All i want to do is run away.

Does anybody know if there are any support groups in the Tipperary area ?

I don’t even know where to begin or how to write this post...
My little boy is 14 weeks old and since right after he was born, I have been suffering with post natal anxiety & panic. I feel so lost and can’t understand why this is happened to me.
My anxiety makes my mind race and I have the most terrible intrusive thoughts. I just want it to stop and the more I will it to go away it won’t !
My GP is really good and says this is normal but yet any support forums I’m on no one seems to mention it...am I going mad...Is it just me...

Hi, I've been suffering with PND since my LG was born, in fact truth be told I think I've been suffering since the birth of my first LG. My daughter is now a year old and I've been out of work due to the PND and stress for 5 months. Although the company doctor agrees with my doctor that I am not ready to return, my employers insurance company says I am and has even provided a date for when I have to return. I haven't slept since I was told this and I'm not sure I can cope with it at the moment. Has anyone else experienced this?

I was wondering if anyone here took antidepressants during pregnancy? Or are there any online forums I can join to chat about it? I recovered from pnd last time (I actually had prenatal depression too but didn't get it treated). I'm 27 weeks along and have done everything I can to manage. My psychiatrist has reassured me that it is okay to take the antids but I feel if I could chat to someone who went through with taking the meds I'd feel better.

I have a 6 month old baby boy . The first three months were fine. When my baby was around 3 months old I started to feel very down . Dreading the day a head with my baby . I have a history of anxiety ocd and mild depression. I’m currently taking Prozac 60mg and Iv just started Prothiaden 25mg . I’m so scared I’ll get worse and wouldn’t be able to mind my baby . I have a partner but he works long hours . Iv no family close by .

Everyday I wake up and give up. PND seems to b3 stronger than me. I lack interests and dont think I was meant to be a mom. Positive thoughts it's what I need. Help ladies
