Hi, I'm currently 23 weeks pregnant with my second child and would like some advice re my care plan. I had a severe episode of PP in Feb09 after my son was born. I was sectioned and spent 3 weeks in a general pych hospital (there are no MBUs near me). I have read on this website information about Dr Katharina Dalton and taking progesterone and sleeping tablets, when I mentioned this to my psychiarist she said her work had been discredited and wouldn't recommend it. It took me 3 years to come off my medication. My psychiarist wants to put me back on 10mg of Olanzapaline as soon as our baby is born. This is the dosage I was one when I was in hospital and it made me feel like a walking zombie. I don't mind taking the medication if I become ill, but as there is a 50% chance of not becoming ill again I feel this is a bit severe.
