I had PPD with my first whose 17 months now and my hubby and I have started talking about IF we should have a second. I'm so happy now with my daughter now I'm so scared if I have a second I won't be able to handle it. But I feel guilty only having one child. Any input? ThanksAnswer Question

My first was 5 by the time my second was born so it wasn't much stress because the older one was at school but now that I have 3 it's stressful and I am currently pregnant with number 4.

The World Health Org recommends waiting at least 3 years before ttc. It takes this long to recover and for the best womb environment. I think this is very important for mothers who have experienced PPD. If you have another baby having a doula for the birth and postpartum can help prevent PPD.
My first was huge adjustments and I may have had PPD. My second was 3.5 years later and very easy. Easy birth, easy recovery, no PPD.
