Postnatal anxiety

I am fairly certain I have postnatal anxiety. I am currently being treated with ssri. Does anyone have any experience of getting a formal diagnosis? I can't help but feel this may help me to recover in the sense that I know I'm not going mad, and that I may be referred to talk therapies. Ultimately, I just want to understand.

Hello, how are you?
I went to my gp and explained how I was feeling. She was lovely.

She said I have depression and anxiety, when I asked if it was considered as post natal, she said yes, but it didn't matter as the treatment was the same.

I have started medicine and awaiting my first counselling session.
