I suffer from prenatal depression, and it was/is pretty bad, and I have to take medication for it. Yesterday I had an ultrasound at the hospital, and the obs doc said that in his experience the peds will take the baby onto icu for seven days for observation after birth.
Our ped hospital is pretty quick with taking the baby to icu, and I am not sure if there really is a valid reason for this - but then - I am biased ...:)
I don't really want this (obviously) and am worried about the early bonding and the risk of postnatal depression.
The medication I take is omipramol and clorazepat.
I have an appointment with the head of the peds hospital to discuss the plan, does anybody here have any experience that she can share, or data? Thank you so much!
I looked around a bit but could not find anything like a "protocol", the risk for postnatal symptoms appear to be quite small for the baby...but I might be wrong...
