Reply to PPD round two?
Anonymous

I had PPD with my first with suicidal thoughts. I was also not sleeping and my daughter was in the NICU in the beginning and that really set me off. I did not have PPD with my second. I had some sadness with my second in the beginning but nowhere close to what happened the first time around. I was very careful the second time to get a lot of rest, eat, and go for walks. I think if you know the signs and you stay on top of sleeping and eating it will help a lot. I got a lot of support in place for my second so that I could get a full night's sleep every night. If that's possible for you, I highly recommend it.
