"This was my third child and with the other two I suffered terribly from post natal depression"
"I had to write and let you know what an amazing impact the post natal CD has had on me. This was my third child and with the other two I suffered terribly from post natal depression - each time it went on for well over a year. I had planned not to have any more kids as the depression had been so bad. I then got pregnant by accident with Chloe - I was petrified that I would have to go through the PND again. I then heard about your CDs and decided to give them a go (the other 2 births had been pretty awful as well so I wanted anything that would help). I listened to the CDs as much as I could and went on to have a really positive birth - so different from the others.
However, for me, the main effect as been post natally. I started listening to the post natal CD as soon as I could on the post natal ward - the others thought I was a bit weird! Amazingly, I felt really great after the birth and bonded straight away with Chloe. I had not even thought I would breast feed, but something in me felt like giving it a go (I am still breast feeding now - 3 months on).
I carried on listening to the CD when I got home, whenever I had a chance, and even though I still got really tired, none of the depression came back
Thank you so much - words can not express how wonderful it is to feel normal and to even enjoy those first few weeks with my daughter. "
