Our expert says:
Having just very recently lost my own mom, a very remarkable and inspiring woman, I can fully understand your grief and your sense of loss. Yes indeed, life can move on, even if right now you don't see the roadmap or find it believable that forward movement can be possible. And the hormones of a first pregnancy probably aren't helping much. DO see a counsellor to work with your grief ( it's hard work, but worthwhile, and will help you to achieve the life, with your child, that your mom would want and be proud of ) ; and maybe see a psychiatrist for advice on managing the depression. As one needs to be very cautious about using meds during pregnancy, and to choose carefully when breast-feeding, discuss tis, and remember that good CBT counselling can be as effective and of course has no such risks
