I didn’t think about postnatal depression before I had my baby. Why would I have done? I was happy to be pregnant and excited about meeting my son. But after three horrid, scary, out-of-control months following the birth, I had no choice but to confront it. Postnatal depression comes in many different forms: anxiety, depression, panic attacks, insomnia – all of which can be passed off as “baby blues”. At what stage do you seek help? Who do you go to? Will they MAKE you take medication?
