Firstly, I'm sorry that someone, I don't know who, has caused needless delays in putting your question to me, so I can answer it.
What you seem to be describing is an irrational degree of worry about realistic and unrealistic risks, and there could be several causes for this, including a possible PND (Post-Natal Depression ) or anxiety disorder, and there sound like elements of OCD, and Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, in which one worries fiercely about such things, and may even try to ward off the bad possibilities by little rituals you feel may help.
What's needed is a proper expert direct assessment, which could be gained by seeing a psychiatrist in private practice or at a provincial hospital or clinic, or medical school, or even a good GP ; and a discussion of your local treatment options, which may include medicines and special forms of counseling such as CBT. Th god news is that though such conditions ( which often overlap ) can be so distressing, they usually clear up well with proper treatment.
