PPD...anyone have any tips for coping?


I was wondering if anyone suffered from postpartum depression after having their little one. I had it when I had my first daughter and am wondering if I will have it again with this daughter.

If anyone did suffer, are there any tips out there on how you coped with it? What about your did he help (or not help)? If you need them, can you take antidepressant while you are nursing?

I am definitely not wishing this on myself but have a feeling since I went through it the first time, I will go through it again. I was reading an article about whether you are at risk or not and what factors put you at greater risk. Some of them don't apply but others do so who knows.

Any advice and/or information would be helpful.

Thanks and TTFN!
