Postpartum during Coronavirus

post-natal depression

Hey mummies, I’m writing here just to try and get a bit of support really as I really feel as though i’m about to loose my mind. 

Last week I gave birth to my little girl 4 weeks before her due date due to high blood pressure. Not only was this a shock to the system, I can’t even see my parents and they haven’t even met their grandchild!!! 

I live alone as I am not with the baby daddy, so I literally have no help at all. I’m a first time mum and really struggling in self isolation, they say postnatal depression can be common but I feel like the odds are against me and my mental health right now. I’m tired, emotional and exhausted. 

Hopefully this will all be over soon and I can be reunited with my family when I need them the most…

    Hey, I can kind of relate in some cases. I live abroad and gave birth there, away from my family in the UK, yes my husband was there but he went back to work 4 days after the birth and works extremely long hours 6 days a week, so I was pretty much a single mum without family around. It is tough but do you know what’s tougher? YOU
    I was shocked at how I was able to cope on my own as a first time, but I did it because I knew there was no other option. I know it’s hard now but you will look back at this time and realise just how strong you are as a person and you will be SO proud at what you have achieved. Hang on in there <3

    This is so sad to hear but you can get through this. All these struggles will be a distant memory. I am 8 months pregnant now with my second child and my husband is stuck in Germany due to all of this. Im so anxious about giving birth without him and how I will cope on my own with the two children but I know I will because I have to. Stay strong this will all be over and you will be back with your family.
