I have prenatal depression and I have started seeing a therapist and have an appointment with a psychologist who specializes in treating it. But my problem is my baby's father (he was my boyfriend but we are separated right now). I don't know how to get him to understand how I was acting was because of the depression and it wasn't me. I tried sending him articles and explaining my situation to him but nothing is working. He says he doesn't know if he can trust me now because when I was really bad and at my worse I left to go stay with my sister because I freaked out. I was also told that I have a higher risk of PPD and not having his support now and the thought of having PPD and not having his support then is making it even worse for me.
Does anyone have any suggestions? How did some of your s/o handle your prenatal depression or ppd?
