Our expert says:
5HTP is not a recognized effective treatment for depression. The cost quoted for a psychiatric initial assessment sounds rather excessive, and you should ask your GP if he can't find you someone less hectically expensive. Your depression should respond to proper treatment, and then will not harm your child at all. If necessary, get assessment and treatment from your nearest medical school dept of psychiatry or major state / provincial hospital or clinic.
The Depression & Anxiety support group ( number on this page )may be helpful, including helping you find a more affordable shrink.
Persist - this disorder can be controlled, and you're worth it !
