Just this week I h e been diagnosed with Post Natal Depression. My baby girl is 4.5 months old and I put off the doctors visit for about 2 months. This is the third time I’ve had depression, but I feel that I have been able to catch this a lot quicker than other times. I guess I had the feeling of failure if I admitted tht I wasn’t coping. I mean my daughter sleep 12 hours a night, never cries and is the happiest little girl!

i have a support network of aome great mums, i told them hiw i was feeling, they encouraged my trip to the doctor. I can’t stress enough how important it is to have a good support network. I probably would have let this continue without support if I had no one. From my speaking up I was contacted by another mum and encouraged her to seek help, which she has. Today I feel is a good day, here’s hoping it continues xx

  • Glad it all worked out ,this is a real event ,dealing with babies & lack of sleep is hard enough !


  • Thanks for sharing your story and for raising awareness of PND; so glad you have a support network and are sharing your experience too. x :)


  • I’ve never had PND but know of a few ppl who have suffered from it. You’re a wonderful person to be able to support others as well as yourself through a tough time.


  • Why are the comments the same as the story?


  • I am just wondering what do they do, how do they diagnose PNE and how do they treat it. I have been wondering if I nay have it as well, a familh member has said they think I hwve it. My little girl is almost 5 months and j just dont seem myself ss much anymore


  • Good luck with your PND, keep reaching out to people who can help you through this difficult time
