Hi, all.

Dc3 was born a week ago, big gap with other DC. Emergency C-section under ga, infection, scbu, very traumatic. I had a mc last December so am very grateful he is here.

Now I feel like something is going to happen to him, all the time, keep imagining the worst. Midwife says some anxiety is normal but I can't relax. I'm even looking up stories about people losing babies to see what happened, so I can avoid risk etc etc.

I feel scared even to leave him with my husband so I can sleep and recover from what happened.

Can anyone help me with this? It's making me quite tearful and unhappy.

Thanks

I was the same, just keep telling people you feel too worried. I told about 10 people (midwives/nurses/doctors) before anyone took me seriously and started talking to me and helping me ! Was an awful time but slowly getting better xx
