Have you ever experienced PPD before? Did your m/w help you through it? What sorts of treatment did you use?

I've never had PPD, but I have had depression during pregnancy with 2 of my pregnancies. I usually work backwards and get depression in pregnancy that gets better once I give birth.

I had PPD after Lily and Kate's birth. I didn't have any support from my OB/GYN with how I felt after Lily was born... but with my midwives (after Kate's birth) it was completely different. They'd call just about every day or so to check on me, they'd listen to me cry, they came to my house, I saw them much longer than the 6 weeks PP care. I did use some herbal remedies as well, Motherwort being one, and rescue remedy being another, I also took some vitamins as well. In the end, it passed around 4 months PP or so.... I'm so glad I had their support and help during that time.

I had PPD after I had Gage, it was severe. Thankfully I didn't have it after Dane and i have a firm belief that because of how they were born is what caused it. I believe I sunk into a deep depression because of how Gage's birth turned out and Dane's birth went how I planned it and that helped.

I actually didn't...thought I may but I did take my placenta encapsulated and I believe that truly helped with everything all around, will be doing it with each subsequent pregnancy

I had PPD immediatly after I had Hunter. My OB would have helped me through it, if I would have told him. But I was ashamed. Thankfully it got better on its own, but took a while to clear up. I didn't take any meds for it, I am sensative to most medications. Walking, being outside, and eating real healthy helps a lot.
