This website is a place for women who are experiencing mood disorders after giving birth or adopting a baby (or have had past experience with these issues), as well as their families and friends and health professionals with an interest in reproductive mental health.

Tonya Rosenberg - Founder - The Online PPD Support Group
i have a 9 week old baby nd have been noticing signs of ppd for about 3 weeks. I've suffered from depression for years but this is something if fervent. I have seen my psychiatrist twice and my counselor once (I hope to increase the counselor visits). I have a really great husband bt he doesn't understand this. He s trying to be supportive but he says that unless he pretends I am physically impaired he gets mad about the situation. I'm having a hard time getting out of bed, a hard time doing anything I enjoy and a hard time taking care of my other children. My psych recommended daily outpatient help and I think that wonky DH up, but he stil seems so mad about everything. I'm worried this s going to ruin our marriage. I don't really know what my question is other than if anyone has any words of advice for me, DH, or this situation.
