I am frustrated at the lack of information out there on the causes of ppd and anxiety. I gave birth to my son almost one year ago and experienced ppd and anxiety from 6 weeks pp until I became pregnant again this past summer. The change was so remarkable and immediate that I am convinced my symptoms had a hormonal bases, though when I said this to my therapist, he was not inclined to agree. My exploration of current research has not yielded much evidence to support my theory, with the exception of some very small studies of estrogen replacement therapy. Does anyone have any good links? I desperately want to nurse my new little one but I do not want to go back to that hole I was in.
