| ||If you have done all of the measures above and still believe you are not managing the distress of infertility you may need additional help. Infertility is a very distressing time of life and may indicate a predisposition to post-natal depression. Depression after the birth of a baby is very common – approximately 9% of women suffer it. It can be prevented or minimised by knowledge and making some changes in your personal situation. Sometimes drug therapy is needed but often not. |
The most important thing to do is discuss your feelings with the staff of Assisted Conception Australia and your doctor. If we succeed together in reduced post-natal depression we have made the world a better place!!
