i was also put on anti-depressants for post-natal depression, i was too afraid to tell anyone but when i did, my doctor and health visitor were amazing. im only jus startin to pick myself up again, with exercise, routine, joinin support groups/ networks, i also had behavial therapy which shows u how to turn you negative thoughts and feelings into positive ones. but most importantly talking about your experiences and feelings, u would be amazed hw many people feel the same way. make sure you are gettin out and about and making new friends. good luck to everyone who is suffering, i know you will all make progress, and always remember no parent is perfect, because we are all human after all, as long as your kids are happy and healthy u are doin a brill job!

I did, but I never really told anyone. My bf kinda knew about it, but not the full of it. I managed to bring myself out of it, but it took a couple of months. I didnt want to tell anyone, I thought they'd think of me as a failure. and on the outside we looked like a nice new normal family. Everyone in our family was in love with my daughter, how could I NOT be?! But everythings ok now. I love her withall my heart and she brightens my day!

i had postnatal depresion after my 1st was born, didn't feel like i had anything to look farward to, couldn't enjoy anything, was always unhappy and snappy with people, i was put on anti depresants but stopped taking them, i ended up going for a long walk with my son everyday and going out with friends for coffee ect, and that helped, i also got myself into a routine, would go to bed at a certain time, be up and dressed by a certain time, do the cleaning and head off out for a bit with my son, still doing the routine but dont feel like going out everyday now but i am alot happier :)

I also was on antidepressants, but i dont really like medicine so I stopped taking them. I am lucky enough to have gotten the bond as well. I breastfeed and I think that helped, but for months every time I breastfed my son I wanted to throw up.

I had post partum depression bad. I still have trace symptoms but it was bad before. I was so scred to be home with my son for fear that I would black out and do something to him. Trust me, I love him to death, but I hear stories about all these women killing or hurting their kids. I would get so frustrated so easy.
