I have not been an active user of this forum, but have followed many of your stories over the past two years. It has given me an incredible amount of support and hope during difficult days. I live in Germany and we do not have anything comparable here (in fact even the information available on PP is quite terrible).
I had PP within days of the birth of my daughter in Summer 2015 completely out of the blue. I spent three weeks in hospital in a fairly manic, agitated state (a terrible experience in a general ward together with my baby where my family needed to care for the baby day and night - it put a terrible strain on everyone) and needed to go back to hospital within a month due to severe depression (this time without the baby) for another few weeks. After that it was a long, but generally uphill struggle, 6 months after the birth I felt quite normal again and was off meds , and after 10 months I returned to work. The past year has been very good for me, the only difference to before PP is that I pay much more attention to my wellbeing (eg enough sleep/rest).
Now, my partner and I are thinking about a second baby. We have found a psychiatrist/psychotherapist with experience in the area and I am already a patient of hers. My partner and I meet up with her next month for a general couple advisory meeting discussing a potential pregnancy/risks and care plan options and she would lead/coordinate my care with all other doctors/hospitals in case we proceed with our plan.
I am quite decided I would like another baby and that the illness won't return as bad as the first time if at all (since we'll have a plan and proper care from the beginning). And of course I have followed all discussions regarding second pregnancies in this forum and feel quite well informed.
However, for my partner I think it would be extremely helpful to talk to another dad with PP experience who went through a second pregnancy/birth. I think in some ways the whole experience was more traumatising for him than for me. I don't know if one of your husbands would be up for a private email exchange or if that could be done via a peer support program? Anyway I thought I'd check, since he also mentioned to me a few weeks ago that he would be very interested to talk to any dad who was in a similar situation.
