****My friend REQUESTED that I post this: just so that no one gets mad that I'm posting some elses business**** My x-roommate had a baby in January and while she was pregnant she was off her meds (she is bi-polar/manic depresive). Instead of getting back on her meds when she had her baby she chose to breastfeed. She's such a loving mom and VERY assertive to her babies needs. She was doing GREAT until last week when she got very depressed and tried to kill herself. She had been going to counceling to try to even things out while she was off her medication. Now, the family she was staying with is trying to get her baby taken away from her because they say she's not "stable" enough to take care of her baby anymore. I think that she was just suffering from post partum depression and not so much just being off her meds, or maybe a combonation of both. Is this socially correct for the family she was staying with to try to take her baby away from her? She was doing SO great until this point. You could tell just by looking at her that she loves her baby SO deeply and even the slightest wimper would bring her running to his "rescue". What can she do to fight this or in you alls opinion woud it be best for her to let the family have the baby? The family she's staying with were Christians, which really doesn't make any difference, but she wasn't really religous, do ya'll think that could be a reason why , o r part of the reason, the family wants the baby....? Any comments are welcome no matter which side of the line your on.
