Hormones making me nuts since having baby

Hi, I hope you are all well.
I was hoping for a little advise, since having my son 19 months ago my hormones have been all over the place! I am embarrassed to admit that my temper tantrums rival my sons at times! My mother had the same problem after having children and she only really calmed down when she went through the change, this scares the hell out of me as I always aimed to be a calm person, I meditate, read to expand my knowledge on coping skills and look after myself. But yet I am still acting just like my mum did! I bought a lot of vitamin suppliments that are meant to help with hormones and that did take a bit of the edge off, I have been taking them for a month, so maybe they need a few more months to really make a difference.
Any advice would be really helpful.
Oh i should say that my doctors are not very helpful at all so they are not really an option.
Thank you for reading and have a lovely weekend xx

Sorry you are going through this. It must be really hard.

Do you have help at home or are you under pressure having to do everything? Do you ever get any time that is just for you?

Are you able to recognise just before your mood starts to affect you? I am just wondering if some breathing techniques would help. You probably know lots from learning meditation.

Do you have anyone in RL you can vent to when you need?

I hope you find something that works for you.
