I got postnatal psychosis and ended up in hospital because of it. I in no way wanted to harm my baby. It was the opposite for me. I was scared that there were men outside trying to kill my baby. I had hallucinations and delusions but my bond with my baby was amazing. I just wanted to protect him

I had postpartum psychosis were I kept having almost OCD thoughts about what if I just dropped my baby etc..it was scary like I couldn't control my own brain. I never had any mental health issues before my daughter was born. I got medication for the psychosis that really helped but I do now battle with depression and anxiety. But I would not trade my daughter to be how I was before I had her. Postpartum psychosis is very scary and definitely is when you need support around you that can get you help because often you don't even realize you need help.

Postpartum psychosis and postpartum depression are two very different things. They definitely should not be lumped into one mutual thing. Postpartum Psychosis is the stories we about when the moms harm or kill their kids. Please learn and know the difference.
