I had a c-section due to having a breech birth. I also lost 35 lbs (i only gained 27 with baby) the first 6 weeks due to post-partem depression. I wasn't interested in anything, not food, baby, etc. for a few weeks. I felt like my life was over! I finally just snapped out of it (sleep helped) and now I'm doing wonderfully and couldn't be closer to my baby. I've always wondered, though, if having a c-section brought on my post-partem or just made it worse. I wanted to know if anyone had experienced it being more likely to have depression with a c-section? I know women have it with every type of birth experience, but I thought I would ask more knowledgeable women! I want to have a second baby and I'm not sure if I would do better it I had a VBAC.
