Speak with your gynae about post natal depression, ask to be referred to a psychologist or a psychiatrist, who will be able to assist you in getting over your fear.

Good luck, I know how you feel. I'm on anti-depressents now, and my sex life has returned to almost normal. My baby is 8 months old, I went into shock after the birth.

I'm just worried as I have to start weaning off the anti depressants in two months time, but I am going to discuss staying on them for a little longer.
