Our expert says:
So very sorry to hear of your sad experience. DO see a good local counsellor asap ( the hospital should have recommended one straight-away ), and call Lifeline . Do NOT blame yourself --- this is very sad, but you did NOT harm your child. You did the best that you could in the situation, and none of us can do more than that.
Sorry if your psychiatrist hasn't the sense to always keep some openings for emergencies --- but do see someone else in the meantime.
And as Anon says, do try to reach Compassionate Friends ( started years ago in the UK by a friend of mine ) --- which helps anyone who has kost a child, at any age.
