Hi All I’m New.

Hello, I’m Haifa, I’m a 21 year old Newley married and a new Mother. I came here for support on the way I’m feeling as I’m not sure whether I could have some form of depression.. I just want somebody to talk to. Hope we can all get on. Thanks

    Hi Haifa and welcome to the board! :wave:

    Congratulations on becoming a Mum - I am so happy for you. :)

    I'm sorry you are experiencing what feels like depression, but since I was a very young mother of quite tender age, I went through a similar period of what my doctor said was postnatal depression. Though I would not like to say you have the same, I urge you to see your doctor and get advice because only then will you know for sure.

    The Mix is a very lovely community, highly supportive and having a very good bunch of staff. I hope you will enjoy your time with us on the forum.

    Wishing you all the best,

    Hi Haifa, have you spoken to a doctor or other medical professional? I’ve had PND with both of my children. Being a new Mum can be so isolating. I’m glad you’ve reached out x x
