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
