Post Partum Depression Support Group

Postpartum depression (also postnatal depression) is a form of major depression which can affect women, and less frequently men, after childbirth. It is widely considered to be treatable. Studies report prevalence rates from 5% to 25%, but methodological differences among the studies make the actual prevalence rate unclear.

    Overwhelmed

    My daughter is two weeks old.  I feel so sad and anxious.  I'm always worried did she eat enough did she eat too much.  Why don't I feel more attached?  Can I do this by myself when my husband goes back to work? I feel completely lost and confused.

    Hello,My name is Aimee. I am 19 years old. I have given birth to a beautiful baby girl 3 months ago. I love her very much. She is the best thing that has happened to me. But recently perhaps less than a month ago, I believe, I have been feeling weird. I cry almost every day for no reason or for the smallest things. I get so irritable at point that I got the walls or put my hand into a fist very...

    post partum depression is all new to me and so overwhelming, I've been trying to reach out to my fiancé over the phone. He's living in a different city for just over two months now and we're finally in the process of moving. Everytime I get to talk to him on the phone he's ether busy or tired, and I've told him many time I just need to have a conversation with him because I just need to talk to...

    Need some reassurance

    Have been going through ppd for a while now, and I feel like it's never going to end. I have good days but most of my days are bad. My husband doesn't understand. I know he tries to be supportive but he still lashes out at me for not cleaning up after the kids, etc. and my crappy sleep schedule, but I have insomnia and honestly, that's the only time I can be alone. I just feel like everything in...

    I love my son. But he's also my biggest struggle. I've been diagnosed with borderline personality disorder AND bipolar disorder and it's impossible to get treatment or even recover at all when I'm constantly concerned with this baby. I'm so tired and dehydrated and hungry and suicidal and I want nothing but to give up...

    Post partum

    I recently had a baby and have post partum but I feel that no one understands me.. I can feel myself yelling inside.. I love my baby and would never change anything about my baby.. I just want to make myself better so I can be better for my child.. People tell me they understand but they don't.. I feel I have no one who can understand what I am going thru.

    Overwhelmed by PPD and Life

    7
    I'm currently going through a myriad of issues. My boyfriend passed during my pregnancy, and I'm pretty sure the grief caused her to arrive early.I never wanted kids, and now that I have the baby, I'm trying to mourn the loss and be a decent parent. Unfortunately, I keep feeling like I don't want the baby. I think she would do a lot better with two loving parents who truly want her, instead of...

    Feeling misunderstood and alone.

    I'm not sure what to say. Iv recently been diagnosed with PNDA.  I always suspected, but only recently sought help. It came on after my 4th child arrived prematurely a year ago.  Unfortunately I don't have the support of my partner who doesn't understand depression is more than a simple choice of headspace

    my daughter will be three in February. I have a history with depression so I didn't think what I felt over the years was PPD but I wi see if I'm wrong. I have been getting worse more disconnected less inclined to play with her and just feel like I don't have a connection. Anyone else show up this late ?

    Postpartum

    Hi everyone,Just wondering if anyone is still in this group. I'm looking for some support and hope you guys are still available! I have really great days that turn into awful nights/mornings. I'd love to have some friends that just help me through the bad spells. It always helps me to talk through the bad mood swing. Let me know if you'd like to be a good support system for each other. Thanks!

    Hello, My son was born 10/22. He will be three weeks old tomorrow. I love my baby so much but I can't stop wishing I was still pregnant. Every day I find myself thinking of a time that I was pregnant. Every Friday I think about what I was doing at that time the day on the Friday I was in labor. I keep wishing I could just go back to the day before he was born. Then I feel horrible because I...
