Hi. I have a 3 year old little boy. I was just wondering if anybody else started suffering from very bad anxiety after their little one was born. I've always been a worrier but I've noticed since he's been born my worry and anxiety have gone off the scale.

I’m exactly the same. My Dd is 2 and my anxiety has been horrendous since she was born. I see danger in absolutely everything and it’s exhausting. Are you getting any support?

That's exactly how I feel. I think the worst in every situation. I have tried counselling and hypnotherapy, but neither of them have helped really. So I'm just trying to get over it myself at the moment x

Sorry to hear they didn’t help. Do you have much support from family/friends?

Yeah I do, but I always feel like a nuisance asking for help. Have you had any counselling or anything for your anxiety? X
