Anxiety with newborn

not sure – perhaps because I have family all over tomo to meet my newborn. She’s two weeks old tomo! I came over extremely anxious and sick tonight so thought share on this website. I’m lucky as my other half is here and taking care of our baby in the evenings so I can sleep but he goes back to America 4th July and I’m scared how il cope alone. M.e/ ptsd / new first time Mum so I hope I can manage ok 🙁

Wow, congratulations! Welcome to this beautiful new world little one! Your fears are very understandable as a first-time mum. How long will your partner be in the States, just for Independence Day celebrations? Can your family or friends offer you support? Are there any new mum groups near you that you can attend and start to build up a new network of friends and support? Maybe ask your Health Visitor and your perinatal mental health team about any or check local community notices e.g Church new mums groups etc. Have you had a look at mumsnet

Here are some other links that maybe helpful:

Ok folks, I'm sure many of you will be able to offer timely advice and support, so it's over to you.

You're doing great Starlight!

Best wishes,
