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.

    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 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...

    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

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!

My doctor prescribed me antidepressants...
