After posting on the forum for the first time the other week I just want to first say thanks for the supportive welcome.
I experienced late onset PP last year after stopping breastfeeding my first little one. I'm now expecting with our second child due any time in the next couple of weeks. I'm gratefully in a good place health wise now after my journey of illness and recovery (which still feels ongoing to me really). No longer any symptoms, not on any medication, "just" lingering PTSD.
I've read the guides on here and I'm with Perinatal and Early Intervention teams who have made a birth/care plan, have plans to monitor me closely after birth, medication in my bag just in case. I'm planning a home birth as I'm incredibly anxious in hospital settings now after my experiences last year being sectioned but I know there's still a chance I could end up in hospital which is a frightening prospect for me.
I just wanted to reach out to see how other mums personally approached subsequent births after experiencing PP? It feels like a strange place to be, wanting to be as prepared as possible but also feeling like it's out of my hands to an extent.
