I suffered from Post Partum Psychosis 25 months ago after the birth of my daughter. I spent 7 weeks in a Mother and baby Unit and was put on Olanzapine. On returning home I suffered from depression. However, by the time my daughter was 10 months old I was off my medication. Four months later I suffered from a hypmanic episode. As this was out with the post partum period (by a mere 2 months) my psychiatrist has diagnosed me with Bipolar Affective Disorder. Has this happened to anyone else? I would love to hear from you all.
