I'd been suffering with depression a long time, but when my daughter was born was when the depression was at it's peak. And this is what started it, it seems. I wanted the birth to be something that only my husband and I experienced. But most of my sister in laws (3 or 4) also crowded into the delivery room. They got to hold my daughter first and it felt like they really took something important from me. I never have felt completely connected with my daughter. I've always felt like she's someone else's daughter. I don't understand why I can't get over it. But it really caused the postpartum depression to come on early and strong.
