I am desperate for help. I am having postpartum depression/anxiety and having severe panic attacks which keep coming in waves. They will not let up to let me sleep. I am exhausted. oes anyone know od a good doctor or counselor that deals with this postpartum? I am trying to make it to Monday to get help, my doc is on vacation and I am afraid to go to the emergency room. My baby is 1 month old today and I am suffering. Please help, anyone.

Are there any walk-in clinics where you live? Maybe you can start there. I am a recent mother myself and some days especially in the first 6 weeks were almost unbearably hard. Try and be strong. Look at your baby remember how much you love your little one and how you need to be strong for him/her. Do you have any close friends/ relatives that you can lean on for support or advice? If you do, let them help you. Sometimes you might not feel like letting the ones close to you help you especially if you are exhausted. I hope you get the help you need. Sorry I couldn't be much more help.
