Post-natal depression

What was your experience of post natal depression?

For me, I think it started straight after the birth. I needed a planned caesarean section. When my daughter was born I felt no emotion at all. This really concerned me as I thought that you were supposed to love your child as soon as they are born. I didn't feel any desire to hold her, feed her or change or bath her. I did do all these things, I just did it without any emotion. I would just leave her crying because I couldn't handle her and felt that she wasn't mine.

Raising a child with Down's Syndrome

Our fourth child, Johanna, was born in March 2000. I was almost 45, so I knew I had a significant risk of having a child with Down's Syndrome. I'm a natural pessimist so I waited anxiously for the midwife to pronounce that she was "OK". Everything seemed to be normal, so I breathed a sigh of relief.

It wasn't until next day, after the doctor's round, that we were told they thought Johanna had Down's Syndrome.
