Is this PPD. — The Bump
Postpartum Depression

Is this PPD.

At 35 weeks I was diagnosis with HELLP and my baby was delivered via emergency c-section. He weigh 3 lbs and had to stay in the NICU for 2 weeks, no serious health problems. I cried when I was discharge from the hospital because I didn't want to leave him which I think was normal. Now he is 7 months and healthly, but I keep having these crying spells because I keep thinking something is going to happen to me and no one will be able to care for him like I can. I just need some encouragement I guess?

Re: Is this PPD.

  • I think a traumatic birth like your sons can definitely linger with you. Frequent crying spells is not normal and not something you have to live with. You should talk to your doctor about it. GL!
  • That sounds like PPD and also some post traumatic stress from what you went through.  Frequent crying is not normal and thoughts of fearing something will happen to you isn't normal either if you're feeling that way frequently.
