Post Partum Depression Help
One of our readers emailed recently about her struggles with Post Partum Depression (PPD). Do you have any professional recommendations for her; or experiences to share?
I am writing with the hope that some mamas will have some answers for me....
I am suffering from ppd - for the second time. I am realizing that I have probably had a low level of depression for most of my life and it really shows during times of great stress (like having babies!) It is definitely worse this time around (2nd babe) and my husband and I have decided to seek some help.
We have contacted a few folks but thought i'd put it to the umamas too. Ladies, please share your experiences with me and help me to feel better about this situation. I am trying to not feel like such a failure. it is a challenge. but the challenges of living with depression are far greater!
So, practitioners you like, safety of drugs & side effects. I want to nurse my baby and don't want him to have drugs in his system. Would acupuncture help? I am currently taking, er, gulping, herbs and feel its not enough.
