I just had my third baby a week and a half ago and I'm having a very different postpartum experience than I had with my other 2 kids. So far, all our pediatrician visits have been online except the first one and I'm really reluctant to take him to the doctors except in an emergency. I'm also not able to have any outside help which is adding to my exhaustion. On the bright side, I pr... More
If so, any thoughts?
Our pediatrician called last night. My wife’s been taking questionnaires with every visit of our 6 month old for post-pardon depression. A few months ago it was a 6, then a 8, and now it’s a 12. The doctor suggested my wife start seeing a therapist. I think therapy is a good idea, especially when staying home with two little ones 24/7. I knew she was feeling down, but didn’t know the severity ... More
Looking for some experiences with a vbac. For context, I had a scheduled csection with my first, and a fairly easy recovery. I was up and walking in a week or less. Trying to decide now if I want to try for a vbac or just schedule another csection. Or if I go into labor early ask for one at the hospital. I wish I had a magic ball comparing the two experiences, and which has a faster recovery ... More
Day 3 after birth. We were discharged last night from the hospital. My breasts are so engorged as I have chosen to not breastfeed I am reaching out for HELPFUL suggestions to relieve pain other than ice/heat compresses and pain medicine as I have already been doing those.

Anyone know of what gummies/vitamins to take for low libido? I’m not talking about once a month low libido. I’m talking about straight up no interest low libido. I haven’t had sex since approx the baby was 6-8months old, and now he’s turning 2 in January. My husband doesn’t pressure me into having sex cause he knows my “situation” but I think it’s time I do something about it otherwise the rel... More
Is it possible to have postpartum depression over a year later? I just got a new job that is physically demanding and I haven't been sleeping well and thought maybe that was it but now I'm crying all of the time and just feel like a piece of crap and a terrible mother and wife. Sometimes I regret having my child and just look at her in annoyance and then I regret thinking that. I don... More
Expected my third period since ending breastfeeding. I’m a few days late. At what point should I expect my periods to normalize? I had been very regular prior to having my son 6 months ago. I’m wondering if I should be expecting weirdness with my period, or if I should be buying a pregnancy test?
Background - My wife just gave birth a couple days ago. Our 4th child, she is 44, never had an issue with the others. Thanks
My friend is having a baby and I was wondering what are some things everyone wished they would have known about after giving birth? I have already shared with her my experience just kind of curious what others thought on the subject as well.
