I feel like I need help with potential PPD and want to discuss with my OB. But I?m getting nervous about what the repercussions of a PPD diagnosis would be. For example, would it affect my ability to get life insurance? I also read on another website that a woman who was diagnosed with PPD was barred from adopting by several agencies (that had zero tolerance for mental health issues). Are there other ways that PPD can be used against me?
