Im going to sound so horrible now but i honestly want to know am i the only one who is going through it. I had my son on monday and it wasn't traumatic as it was via elec cesarean. Anyway i have been feeling really low, i feel like my life is now over after having a baby and when he doesnt settle or keeps crying i end up crying as well and just feel like shite basically. I dont want my family coming over i just want to stay in bed and not get up!! Please tell me this will pass sad

Ah butterfly you need your family to come over. Anyone to give you a hand. You need to see your health visitor or gp asap too. Post natal depression would be a real concern. Mind yourself but please please get someone over. I would have been lost without mine even just for companyflowers

Butterfly, it's really normal to feel down/weepy after having a baby. Not only are your hormones all over the place but your life has changed hugely and the responsibility can be, frankly, terrifying.

It might pass but as pp said, PND is a possibility so please do talk to your HV or GP. PND is nothing to be ashamed of and can be sorted really quickly so you can enjoy your lovely son. If you have family or friends that you're close to and would feel supported by then get them round too.

Congratulations on the birth on your boy. Hope you feel better soon 💐
