I had a postnatal depression after my daughter Ema was born, which lasted quite some time. I never new how hard it was until I had my second child, a boy. All the fillings I experienced for the first time with my second child, made me knew the difference. I practically missed the first two years of Ema's life and we didn't make that basic mother-daughter/child connection. And I am aware we don't have that connection and I am trying very hard to rebuilt that. We do several activities together (just the two of us), but I am not sure if we are getting anywhere. During my absence, she connected to her father and her aunt (instead of me). I love her very much, but am not sure what to do anymore.
If any of you has this experience, please give me some advice how to handle our relationship, thank you.

Best regards,
