It would definitely be wise to seek a proper expert assessment and advice based on those findings. I wonder, for instance, whether there might be some PND, Post-natal Depression, which can cause the sort of symptoms you describe, and which responds well to treatment both with antidepressant meds and CBT counselling. These treatments will also deal with the anxiety symptoms, while the sort of sedative tranquillizers many GPs still use for anxiety symptoms often prolong or worsen depression. If at all possible, see a good local psychiatrist for an assessment and a discussion of your treatment options, either privately or through your nearest medical school or major state/provincial hospital or clinic
