I'm curious if a traumatic birth makes it more likely for a woman to have baby blues or ppd.
Since my traumatic birth 4.5 years ago, I've been amazed that I didn't have any baby blues. I've had depression before, and I'm prone to seasonal depression, etc. And my ds's birth freaked me out, big time- the nurses were greatful that I lived (meaning they thought there was a chance I wouldn't) and I was so close to having a hysterectomy, that I'd already signed the consent form. And those are just two pieces of it!
So I'm really surprised that I didn't have any blues or ppd afterwards.
Just wondering if anyone else had the same type of experience.
