Our expert says:
Post-natal depression is more common than most people realize. If you want to consider haing another child, do discuss this with your psychiatrist who can properly assess the situation. It is possible, but proper planning is adviseable, about which medications to use, and when, and whether ( and when ) to reduce or stop them temporarily. Some meds are relatively safe in pregnancy, others are not, And discuss with your shrink the issue of what YOU want. One must respect that your husband might want another child, that's very reasonable, but he doesn't have to bear it, and one should proceed in that direction only if you want it, too.
