I had pp 4 month after giving birth to my second daughter. I have no familial pattern of mental illness or pp... This episode was completely out of the blue. Im finally starting to feel like my oldself again (feb is the 1 yr anniversary of being admitted to a general psych ward). This site has offered me so much just from talking to others who've been through it to educating myself (my drs didnt tell me much of this illness or if they did i don't remember).
The one thing I've been wondering about is what does this mean for my daughters when they come into child bearing years. What percentage are they at risk for developing this? As i said my side of the family has no mental illness but my husbands mother is bipolar so my daughters have a history of mental illness in thier paternal grandmother and ive had pp only with my second child. I havent been able to find much info on how genetics in future generations plays a role. Any links or info is appreciated.
