Has anyone else experienced ppd after a previous loss of an infant? I had my baby daughter less than a year after my son's death. I find that grieving the death of my son to SIDS and experiencing ppd symptoms are related, though not always in a predictable way. PPD is so bizarre! Grief is no fun, but at least it's understandable. I also fall into the category of having ptsd. I've made incredible progress and my husband and I are now getting ready to try for another baby. With the excitement, anxiety (and hormones) that go along with that, I'm having some setbacks. Soooo discouraging!

I can't imagine what you must be going through. Grieving the loss of your little one and going through ppd at the same time..which in itself is bad enough.

I don't have much advice..Just wanted to offer some encouragement. Hang in there...when your hormones stop raging you will feel like yourself again and your little baby will bring you so much joy - Good Luck

totum00,

I copied this thread over to "Pregnancy & Birth Loss" forum to see if it might get more responses. We do not get much traffic here anymore
