I had PP 27 years ago , back in the day understanding and treatment was very poor.i have just finished 6 monthsof therapy, due to PTSD which has stemmed from the birth, plus general psychiatric hospital treatment which was very non existent and they have put it down in my diagnosis now as abuse.... what i am thinkingabout now, as was reading about post natal PTSD and the symptoms are very much what I went through after the psychosis... Has anyone else been diagnosed with birth trauma or post natal PTSD ..is there a connection to PPP.. I am guessing birth trauma and PTSD is a more resent diagnosis in mothers with new research.. but it has me thinking to a way of a little understanding to why out of the blue I became so seriously unwell.i know I can't change the past. .but it would help me to understand things a little better. Or does PTSD overlap with ppp?
Would be interested to hear anyones views , thanks for reading
