Re: How to try to avoid ppd?

I've had it pretty severely in the past, and it was the worst with my first. I also agree with the placenta encapsulation, but it sounds like that may be challenging. Are there any midwives around you could call and see if they know someone? It wasn't a cure-all, but much better. I'd make sure to take a good vitamin D supplement as well as some really good fish oil, and eat real, healthy foods. It's rough, though, and just the thought of going through it again is stressful I was really freaked out with my second at the thought, and it wasn't nearly as bad. I am sorry you have to deal with it though
