Hi I had my baby girl 2 weeks ago tomorrow I know it's a very short time but I just feel like, i have been to my GP and the mental health team here in cork but I just feel so broken I don't know how I'm going to look after my baby I feel that she would be better off without me that I can't bond with her. I keep thinking things won't get better at all and that I will be stuck like this and fail as a mother

Ciara it is very stressfull at the start and your baby is only 2 weeks, have you support anyone that can help? Not everyone bonds straight away, we are all slightly differant. How was your birth? I know I had a bad experience and therefore found it hard to bond, you need to relax and take one day at a time. Of course your beautifull baby would not be better off without you, you are the most import person in your babies life. I felt like that when I had PND but my child is so important to me. Please dont look on yourself as a failure, you have a lovely baby and it takes time to learn how to be a Mum. Have you been to your GP and have you told your Public Health Nurse how you feel. One day at a time and take any offers of help, it will get better
