I really appreciate your advice. If exercise and vitamins won't help, with all due respect, and I do mean very respectfully, therapy and support isn't going to help. They can't change the chemistry of my body whereas exercise and vitamins have a much better chance of doing so. The first thing a physician should be doing is suggesting that women suffering from mild to moderate PPD check their diet, take a supplement, and EXERCISE because they know the positive effects exercise has on the body. THEN, if that doesn't work (after giving it a good, consistent shot), something else would be in order; like medication for example. My personal opinion on having a support group (for myself) seems counterproductive. I just don't see any help in talking with someone who suffers the same problem I do, who also needs help. Besides offering something in common, it cannot help the actual problem. 🙂 You have a nice site here and I pray many women cross it to become educated about PPD. So many women are made to feel like it's our fault because it's something WE can control, when in fact it is not. But there are things within our reach of control that can help. Keep doing what you're doing! Reply Liz Kaufman on November 13, 2008 at 6:47 pm Christin makes a valid point. The first step should be using exercise and diet. Post-partum with my third, I continued with my pre-natals and also added fish oil and fresh vegetable juice, specifically wheat grass. These seemed to make a big difference compared to the first two children. Reply birth injury on March 11, 2011 at 2:21 am Mothers are apprehensive about making a birth injury compensation claim as they believe that they are claiming against an individual with whom they may have built up a friendly relationship during pregnancy. Although that individual may have been responsible for your, or your child´s, birth injury,if your kid has suffered a birth injury plus you suspect medical negligence. Regrettably, doctors plus hospitals will very never admit fault. Appropriate discovery is essential to knowing whether you have a birth injury compensation case.
