I had post partum depression with all of my girls, did not take anything after my first baby b/c I didn't really know what I was feeling and didn't seek treatment. A couple months after my 2nd baby I realized I was feeling the same things I did after my first so I finally went into the midwife and got a prescription for Zoloft I think. I started Zoloft again shortly after my last baby as a pre-emptive measure.
This time I'm thinking with the better support system I have (mainly an awesome hubby who will help around the house and with the kids), I might not need it if I can start walking and getting vitamin D with the sun and figure out some other natural methods after baby is born. Also doing research now to know better how to deal with Raynaud's which caused severe pain while bfing and I'm sure did not make the PPD any easier, probably worsened it. If anyone has ideas they have tried, I'd love to hear them.
Does anyone else have experience with this? What are you going to do?
