Today – Post Natal Depression
As a Mum of two, and with a strong history of depression I was very aware that the odds of developing PND were not in my favour – especially when my second child was born prematurely and by emergency C-section, throwing my hormones and emotions all over the place. Although I struggled following the birth of both my babies, I don’t think I could honestly say I had PND. After my eldest was born I found it hard to adjust to life as a new Mum, then second time round, well there is nothing that can prepare you for a premature, seriously ill baby. My depression was pretty awful, but just in its normal darkness like way.
