So I'm in Bayside NY, and I have awful PPD.<br><br>
CPS has recently (yesterday) become involved and I'm scared that my ex BF and his mom are trying to get my son taken away from me. I REALLY need to see someone that specializes in PPD (I'm seeing someone right now, its not doing a dam bit of good), and I need a psychiatrist too that knows about BF'ing and meds. We are weaning the baby though, so I guess that doesn't matter too much (he's 10mo)

BUMP<br><br>
This has become URGENT - I need a recommendation NOW. I need someone to tell a JUDGE that its ok for my baby to nurse while I'm on medication - PLEASE someone give a rec - it can be anywhere in the city and I will travel.

These are all Brooklyn resources who might be able to help you. I would also recommend that you contact an IBCLC byt phone and ask them for recommendations for someone, especially if the above folks are full or don't answer.<br><br>
Good luck!

I have no personal experience with PPD or this person BUT I do remember several people saying that she was very very good for those with PPD:<br><br>
Lynne Feigenbaum at 917-689-9371<br><br>
Also I am sure you know of this resource group for PPD but just in case not it seems to have a wealth of resources, surely someone could provide the info you need <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><a href="http://www.postpartumny.org/resource_directory.htm" target="_blank">http://www.postpartumny.org/resource_directory.htm</a><br><br>
Best of luck and love.<br>
hugs.

Thank you!!! I'll call all of these people right now and see if I get any responses tomorrow. Unfortunately, its Sunday today and I'm afraid tomorrow might be too late.

Columbia University has a specialty clinic FOR pregnant women/mood issues.<br><br>
try 212-305-6001 -- it is a crisis line at the university that WILL refer you for where you can get help. from the website "The Telephone Referral Service phone line – 212-305-6001 – is free 24 hours daily. A clinical psychologist answers the phone during regular working hours, Monday through Friday, from 9 AM - 5 PM. At other times, an answering service takes messages for the next working day. In an emergency, the answering service will contact a psychiatrist on-call for a brief telephone consultation. The service is intended to answer questions and give information to patients, their medical or psychiatric services providers, and/or concerned family members or friends."<br><br>
It's really helpful. I've been seeing them for "pre-natal" depression and bipolar disorder during my pregnancy. Good luck!<br><br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">
