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.
