Our expert says:
Breast-feeding can be good for a child but NOT good enopugh to justify a mother struggling to do so, as the alternatives do no real harm. There are 2 possible problems following childbirth. There is PND, Post-Natal Depression, especially if one has a prior history of depression, and it always needs more specific antidepressant treatment than Fluanxol, which is insufficient for a real Depression. There is also the even m ore common Baby Blues, a milder though still unpleasant blues following birth, where family and other support and something like Fluanxol may be helpful.
I'd always prefer the results of an assessment from a psychiatrist to that of a GP when there is any question about diagnosis or treatment
