Hi all.. I am a first time mum to a 17month baby boy.. I am 31 live at home with my mum and dad my boyfriend moved in before the pandemic and babys birth and we are still here.. I feel stressed here as I feel I am not doing things the way my mam would and sometimes it makes me so frustrated. She is good to us but feel she is getting distant sometimes.. I think I had some depression before my baby was born , it was manageable at that time I was able to go to the gym and have time and space for myself to recover from day to day stuff/work etc.. I was becoming more social isolating at that time also when I look back.. now since my baby was born the pandemic living with my parents still and first time living with my boyfriend I feel like I am so depressed I don't want too get up in the mornings I argue with my bf who did what etc I am paranoid my mam feels its too much us being at her house I am paranoid she is talking about us too other family members.. I am paranoid family think we are using then.. we are planning on moving out this year and have saved a house deposit. It was stressful as my bf worked with family and could not move jobs until recently so wasn't able to bring in much money I know my mam was trying to help with suggestions but was making my paranoid worse.. I cry most days now I'm always stressed iv had 3 new jobs since going bk to too work in Feb 21. I plan on going too my doctor to discuss this as it is affecting me my relationships, I have never received mental health help I don't know I'm how I'm feeling is pnd or just depression .. I'm I'm not feeling sad I have anxiety..

I am a first time Mum to an 8 month boy. Being a Mum is something I've always wanted and my husband and I always wanted children. I find I am struggling at the moment. My son has decided he doesn't like his car seat anymore and going anywhere in the car, unless necessary, causes untold stress. He will only nap in his buggy, when walking. Which is fine on the days that I feel like getting up and out but on wet days it can be difficult, especially when exhausted from the night before. He usually sleeps well but at the moment he is waking at night and is very difficult to settle. It is upsetting for us all. I feel extremely limited in where I can go and what I can do. Most days its just easier to stay at home and go for walks near the house. I find this is really getting me down. I feel slightly rejected in that my son will settle for my husband but not for me. I am wondering if anyone else feels like this or has any advice on any of the above. Thanks!

I never suffered with pnd after my little boy i was always so organized and everything was done night before myself and partner had a good relationship. Since baby 2 has arrived i just feel like im in a daze morning till night . I was fine for first few weeks and i am trying by best to put a routine of such in place for the two of them so i can get housework done and still have atleast 10 minutes so i can just sit down and breath .. my partner isnt helping much and then is saying u dont have time for us anymore u dont want to be intimate with me no more truth is i dont care anymore. I just have enough in me each morning to see to my two chikdren for the day and thats it i am starting to get irritable it seems like i just get one too sleep and the other to sleep and go start washing or housework and one wakes then they wake the other and i am lost on what i can do

Some time ago I was diagnosed with thrombophilia, but I did not worry or think about it when I was planning to have a baby. My mother also had thrombophilia, but she had me without problems. Everything had change 5 years ago. After many trials and hopes, I managed to get pregnant, but at 36 weeks I lost the girl. They told me that there had been a massive infarction of the placenta and that the baby had died from lack of blood. I still do not understand why and after years it is hard for me to accepted what happened. Also, I have been starting to realize that it is more and more difficult to get pregnant. I was thinking of donating eggs from a specialized egg bank as a solution. My partner is hopeless and does not trust egg donation, but it would be the last attempt I would be willing to make. I live in Cork. Do you know any clinic that works with egg banks that can help me in this case? I'd like to make an appointment with a doctor to see if I can convince my partner to try again. Any opinion would really help me at this point. Hope someone can help me. Thanks.

Hi all I hope everyone is good. My precious boy is 15 months old and I love him to bits. I feel I have had pnd for months I had hun in June and up until Christmas was flying it. In the new year I started to feel down and fixate on worrying about my little boy I feel he has been hugely impacted by the pandemic and not seeing many people. I panicked because he wasn’t crawling by the milestone age he did start to crawl. I now panic that he isn’t talking or clapping hands or waving. He gives kisses when you say give kiss and chases me I have been to my gp and she just put me on fenergon for sleep. Have brought my little boy to the phn but she just goes on about how tired and anxious I look. I wake at night worrying there is something wrong. When I wake I dread the day I fixate on playing games with him my husband says just let him lead the play but I see all these mums on social media doing messy play sensory play stacking games etc my lad just wants to fly up and down the hall banging at doors and if I build blocks he just wants to knock them I find the day so long because I feel I don’t know what to do with him I feel so guilty and like he would be better off with someone else. It’s very unfortunate for him he got me as a mum he is so lovely and deserves so much better

Hi, new to the page. I had my baby seven months ago. Is there such a thing, or have you experienced delayed post natal depression? Or was it there all the time and now I've just put a name on it? Notwithstanding the massive, negative impact Covid is having on my mental health, I always considered myself fiercely independent and strong minded but now, I don't recognise myself at all. I cry for no reason, any reason and I've found myself using the word anxious when this was never in my vocabulary before. I've read here that many have gone to doctors and were prescribed antidepressants however I refuse to go on them because they mask the symptoms rather than deal with the real issues. I suppose I'm wondering, how do I deal with the issues. I'm married and my husband was very understanding but now I don't think he knows what to do, or what to say. I feel that my responses to everything he does is negative and this would just not be the real me.

Hi all, hope all safe and well. Sorry to bother ye just wondering has anyone been diagnosed with pnd post a traumatic event. I got covid laat may six weeks after birth of my fourth baby. I had atypical symptoms. Very weak like a paralysis or stroke and couldnt breathe. I ended up in isolation for two wks in hospital away from my family and baby who i was weaning off breast feeding. The hospital experience was hard in that i felt so scared , unknown was horrible. All was coming back fine yet i was not good. They sent a pysch into review me who advised it waa covid. Ive a nursing background which didnt help. However once i got home my mental health deteriorated. I got into a hole of tears and i trusive thoughts consumed me. I eventually went to pnd team and they have been amazing. Im.onmeds and through counselling and cbd im working on everything. Im still all over shop at times with thoughts ...I did have alot on family wise but i thought pnd ansd thoughts were towards new baby. Ive had them with the kids etc. And dark days are certainly less whatever covid did to me. Getting physical.symptoms still which could trigger alot too. So sorry this is so long. Just wondering has pnd come on people post a horrible time post birth. So sorry again for long post
