Hi everyone 👋
My doctor has suggested taking lithium and haloperidol from 7 months pregnancy, to reduce the risk of PP. I was up for it, but now I’m 20 weeks I’m starting to feel differently. I’d prefer to take haloperidol and start lithium after the birth.
I understand that Lithium means I can’t feed baby my milk at all, and I’ll probably have to be induced at 39 weeks so they can plan when to stop lithium before birth.
I’ll discuss with him further on Friday, about his thoughts about just taking haloperidol, and starting lithium a few days after the birth. This means I can go into labour naturally, and baby can at least have some colostrum before we switch to formula as I start lithium.
What do you think?
