Hi everyone! I’ve just been diagnosed with pnd and prescribed Prozac.. I’m really hoping to continue breastfeeding ( my baby is nearly 5mths) but I’m really worried about medication being passed onto my baby! Just wondering if anyone has any experience or advice for me! It’s my 3rd baby, had pnd with my first but not my 2nd so was really shocked when the awful sense of anxiety, low mood, snappiness and general feeling of being miserable was back! Thank you all. It’s great to know we are not alone with these feelings!

I’ve recently been diagnosed with PND,I’ve been suffering from anxiety since my daughter was born but when I stopped breastfeeding her two months ago things got way worse. My daughter is now 18months and I feel like I’m going crazy, everything is a big deal, I cry at the drop of a hat, I’m always exhausted and dizzy and I can’t cope with any kind of confrontation no matter how small.
Has anyone else ever experienced PND in this way ? I have chosen not to take medication as we are trying for another baby and the clock is against me but I’m afraid that counselling alone will not help. Has anyone chosen to go this route ?
Thanks for any help

I was diagnosed with pnd a few months ago and I'm taking antidepressants and had to get the dose doubled to see if it helps. I find it hard to get through the days on my own with my babies and I don't feel as connected to them as I did a few months back. I feel I'm letting them down and also I find the pnd is driving a wedge between my husband and myself. Every day is a struggle and I find I'm acting I front of people but I side I'm screaming.

I'm on sertraline 25mg for depression, since 20 weeks pregnancy, now 32 weeks. My doctor says it's safe for the baby, but I've read some confusing info about SSRIs being linked to autism, and although the research is sketchy at best (3% risk instead of 1% risk), I can't get the idea out of my head and I'm so scared and anxious. Has anyone been on similar antidepressants and had a healthy happy baby? Please help. Trying to see GP today but can't get appointment

I have a 3 month old baby and a toddler and I'm finding it so hard to manage. I try to get out of the house but have no enjoyment and don't look forward to doing things. I keep making plans and putting them off. I am oversensitive and everything upsets me. I am irritable and getting into arguments with everyone over silly things. I spoke to the health nurse because I burst into tears in her office but I'm afraid to speak to anyone else in case they don't support me because I've been so argumentaitve lately I think they're sick of me.
I'm due back to work in 3 months and can't enjoy my time off because I'm sick to my stomach with anxiety and worry. If I can't cope now, how will I manage when I go back to work? I am a teacher and know if I take time off with PND I will eventually go back and everyone will be asking what's wrong. I am embarrassed to tell people. A girl was out with PND for few weeks and everyone was talking behind her back saying she just made it up because she wanted more time with her baby. I also will be examined my a doctor from the department of education if I am off for more than 28 days and the thoughts of this makes me so sick.
Will I ever be ok to go back to work?
