I am 4 1/2 months postpartum, and still not feeling right. I'm not going to~or thinking of~hurting myself or my baby, but I am still very upset and feel SO guilty about having a c-section etc. Shouldn't I be far enough past it now to be over it? I am breastfeeding, so I don't want to take anything. I break down any time I hear/read anyone mention birth or vbac etc.Answer Question

It's called post partum psychosis when you are depressed enough to hurt yourself or your children. Mental health professionals use something called the Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale to decide if someone has PPD. Here it is.
You can take antidepressants and breastfeed.
