    I had this issue with my first baby. I had an emergency c section and was a first time mom and not getting much support (except from my husband) He took me to the ER because I had literally lost my mind and told him to feed the baby salt and she's stop crying. Saw My OB while I was in the ER and he started me on antidepressants. Make sure you find a good psychiatrist tho because the one the ER sent me to tried to keep me doped up ( 3 anxiety meds and 1 anti depressant) took me about 2 months before I found one thay took time to listen to me and my concerns

    I have an 8 month old. I didn’t have a c-section but I did have a postpartum hemorrhage. I spent 5 days in the hospital total. It’s been 8 months since my baby has been born and I am still struggling with PPD. I have no support from my fiancé’s family or mine. I haven’t returned to work either since I have no one to watch my child. It’s been super stressful and I do find myself having trouble bonding with my baby sometimes. I am seeking help. So let’s see how that goes. I suggest seeking help before your baby gets older. I’m gonna be honest it’s a little harder when the baby’s want to socialize more. There are times I wish he was 2 months again.

    I had an emergency c section over a year ago. Worst time of my life. I didn't meet my daughter for two days. They flew her 45 minutes away where she stayed in the nicu for 72 days. I didn't even get to see her face as they took her away. I got no milk out and had to bottle feed. I would walk past her room empty no baby. Writing this right now is making me cry. She'll be 13 months this month. I'm still having depression. It's really hard. I didn't stay at the hospital with her like I should have and it was so hard to say goodbye every time I saw her. My baby was alone without mommy or daddy everyday. I'd like to say it gets easier but for me I'm still working on it. I cry a lot. Good luck momma.

    I had very bad post partum depression after I had my baby 7 years ago. It lasted years because I never told anyone and it just hung on to me. Definitely good you’re reaching out and talking about it. It’s so hard to fight that alone
