    I've been prescribed anti depressants this morning, the reason I went doctor's is because I knew I needed help, I'd been low for a couple of months. The doctor put it down as "anxiety with depression", my question is, is this just "normal" depression or PND?

    Hi Jessica sorry your feeling low. My lo is also 6 months depression is very common and can happen at anytime 6 days, weeks, months, years After having a baby. Feeling down is purely down to our hormones which are all out of sorts after having a baby, the realisation of having this lo depend on us, sleepless nights all contribute too. Hopefully now that you've taken that first step of going to the doc & starting your tablets you'll feel better. Sending you a big hug hope you feel better soon. X
