Postpartum Depression

New..

Hi everyone- I had my son almost 7 months ago. After he was born I have always felt overwhelmed , depressed, anxious, not wanting to be around friends and family much. But recently it;s gotten worse. My husband is amasing and does alot, and you would think that would help me, but i still feel the same way. I don't want to go on meds. Is this ppd? Are there additional ways to cope ? Please HELP!!

  • Find a counselor. I didn't want to go on meds either and my counselor was very receptive to that. My doctor gave me a prescription "just in case", but I never had it filled. I finally started to get past my PPD with the help of my counselor, but it took some time. Now I am PG with #2 and looking to get back into counseling. I know I am susceptible to PPD again when this LO is born. It does sound like you have PPD, but only your doc or a counselor will know for sure. I'm sorry you are going through this and I wish you the best of luck. It will get better.
