Sarah, you're not alone. And please never feel ashamed or think that you are a bad mother, because you're not!! I definitely think it is important that you go and get help. Your a mom, we all need help sometimes. Be as honest as you can be with your provider and let them know how you feel.

sarah i urge u to go get help! there is no shame in admitting u have depression and at this hard time u do need all the help u can get, noone will think u r a bad mother or any of those silly ideas we get into our heads. be honest wit your health visitor or go see ya gp if u need to chat im going through it myself, u are not alone so dont feel that way. if u need a chat im here love x

"i have it right now was really bad straight after the birth of my daughter but im getting better each day and she is nearly 5 months old. just wondered whether anyone else was scared to go to the docs incase they thought u would hurt your baby? or if it was just me? "
i have an 11month old daughter and i feel depressed and have anxiety attacks all the time. I cry at the smallest of things and just feel like im going insane. Ive not been to the doctors about it, my health visitor keeps asking me how i am and i have to keep filling in forms about how im feeling. I know shes willing to help me and i think she can sense that something is wrong but yeah i find myself stopping from going to see her as i dont want her to think that. I also dont want to see her sometimes because i have days where i feel ok and can smile and i guess i think that she'll think im pretending or something.
I dont know whats stopping me, but i do feel like im going to burst sometimes!!!
