Hi, can I have a pp please?

I’ve just given birth to my 2nd son 6 weeks ago, he has serious health issues and a long surgery filled road ahead of him. I am really struggling with post natal depression and anxiety but don’t know who to turn to? I don’t want to risk the gp contacting social services or anything like that. What do I do?

Thank you

  1. Get in with ur doctor as soon as you can 😢. They won’t contact social services. Everyone needs help now and then. I’ve had it with my children and it truly is horrible, please call your doctor. I hope you feel better soon. Hugs to you and ur little boy. X

  2. Sorry I couldn’t be of more help but depending what the health needs of your child are the hospital may have a specific social worker to offer support a guidance. I struggled with post natal depression and my health visitor was great as was my GP they would much rather offer support now than have to intervene when/ if your depression gets in the way of meeting your child’s need. Social workers have such a stigma about taking children away from families when actually they have a huge role and would much rather support a child and family than remove a child from a family. Please ask for help from these people they are here to help.
