Manic Depression

Anyone else been diagnosed whilst in pregnancy? The psychiatric team seem at a bit of a loss because in their experience they've usually been aware pre pregnancy.

Anyone with manic depression given birth on here? How were you and how we're you monitored?

The main fear here seems to be me launching into a hyper manic episode or psychosis setting in... I don't see it happening as iv been down most of the pregnancy but then I don't know how childbirth hormones will hit me.

Guess I'm just looking for an ally

Depressions not the issue here, it's the risk of mania/psychosis really but thanks x
