Hi, three years ago I suffered from post-partum psychosis with my first son. I was hospitalised 4 weeks after the birth. Now I am pregnant with twins and am looking at all options to avoid a repeat experience when the twins arrive next month. I hated being on Olanzapine and ideally want to breast feed the twins without any anti-pyschotic in my system. At the moment I am favouring the wait and see approach to drug taking but my husband is petrified by the idea. Looking back the symptoms were showing for at least a week before being hospitalised, anyone who has had post partum psychosis twice, did your illness present itself any faster the second time? I want to know if I show symptoms can we control it before things deteriote too much.
Thanks for any advice
