Can somebody please help. I just had my second baby only 10 days ago. Ive been feeling very very low and anxious and been have the same awful thoughts that this is it. I did get better the last time though it took a long time. I cant see any happiness or joy at present, im back on meds but theyll take weeks to work.
I just need some reassurance. Im very anxious that it will spiral into somethinh worse though i am up and functioning, im just going through the motions each day..i.feel so guilty to. Especially to my firstborn who is 3. Hes such a happy boy and i am currently miserable.
My house does not feel like my own and i feel like i'm in a bubble.
I am dredging up how i felt the last time and its scary. Xx

I have PND for 4 months, very up and down thats bad enough but think I hate my house (I didn't always feel like this) Dont want to be on my own in the house, when I go out don't want to come back, I feel so lonely all the time. I feel I need to be near my family, my partner dosnt understand he thinks I am imaging things and when I get better all will be ok. I am really obsessed and feel if we move I will get better. Is this normal? it is doing my head in...

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 There, I am looking for some advice/insight. My waters broke at week 36, 2 days after the death of my grandfather. I was in hospital for 2 days and on Xmas day I went in to labour, I was 36.6 when the baby was born on Stephens day. The labour was great but after I had a retained placenta. The midwifes where fantastic, they tried everything to avoid me having to go to theather but I lost a lot of bloodand started fainting etc and ended up under general anesthesia to get sorted. I thought I was going to die. 18 hours after I started to feel so so sad. I came home a day after my son was born Because I thought it would help my mood. Now I am home everything in my house reminds me of when I was pregnant and I can't stop crying. I can't stop feeling sad and every night at 7 it gets worse. I dony know is it my ordeal after labour or that I feel robbed of my last 4 weeks of pregnancy but these feelings are starting to worry me. I adore my son and he is so good. But I can't help but feel he shouldn't be here yet and i feel so guilty for giving him a birthday so close to xmas.
