I'm not sure if I'm posting this in the right place but to cut a long story short, I'm thinking about having a baby with my partner. We've been together for 3 years and perfect for each other. Our relationship is strong however the issue of babies has been coming up over the past few months. I know she would make a great Mother but to be honest, the fact that she has Bipolar is making me think twice about the issue. I came across this website earlier this evening and after reading bits on the info page, I'm not too sure. I'm more worried about my ability to cope should she become unwell especially straight after childbirth or in the first few years. I work full time and so would plan to take a 6 month Sabbatical from work when the baby is born. However long term, it's all about juggling work and child care when my partner relapses. Her family said they'd be very supportive should we decide to have a baby but maybe I'm a cynic as it's too easy for people to say I'll be there etc but when push comes to shove, would they? I've spoken to my partner about my fears and she is very understanding. Ideally I'm looking for someone to talk to who is actually in my situation and what advice/info they could offer. Also would anyone have any suggestions as to the best places for further information to help me make an informed decision.
