And here's a blog
Depending on your situation, I would recommend going to the library and getting a book about ppd. Or even an autobiographical one--Brooke Shields, Marie Osmond, and others wrote pretty interesting books about their experiences with ppd.
Also, if you think you're at risk, let your dh or a close friend know what to watch for and have them check up on you periodically. Sometimes it is hard to realize what is really happening and sometimes it is hard to DO SOMETHING about it once you know something is wrong. So yeah, make sure someone is watching out for you.
My second birth wasn't as stressful, but eventually it crept back in. For me, the second episode was easier to manage than the first. I've also heard, from my therapist, that you are at a much greater risk of ppd once you've already had an episode.
((hugs)) to you. Staying conscious of the signs is the best thing you can do right now, and you're doing it. Read, learn, and listen to what is happening inside you.
