I had a really bad case of the blues following the birth of my daughter. She is now 2.5 months old and things are slowly getting better. I never believed I had PPD and my OB agrees but she does think I am more stressed out that I am letting on and has sent a referral to a psychiatrist for "post-partum counselling." Is there still stigma for PPD? Has anyone else received counselling?

I know that one of the reasons I feel the way I do is because none of my friends have babies yet and I feel very lonely/alone and have no one close to me to share in the difficulties of being a new mom.

Anyone care to share their thoughts/experiences?
