I had previously posted about someone I knew who had a baby about 4 months after me. She is not someone I am extremely close to, and I feel our parenting clashes, which isn't a bad thing, just giving some background. She has been through a difficult labour (ceasarean) with complications which have now resolved.
she confided in me that she doesn't feel as though she is bonding with her baby. She doesn't want to leave the house and finds it difficult to do things as her baby doesn't sleep much.
I am concerned she is now going through PND and have told her it would be in hers and her baby's best interested to seek help. She's told me things she doesn't want me to tell anyone else, but I feel that's a burden I shouldn't have to bear. Do you think this sort of information is okay for me to share with my husband (who doesn't see her much at all)? And how do I help her? I've told her I can put another car seat in my car and take her to the GP if she would like. I've offered to come to her place so she can shower etc.. I've contemplated making a meal for her.. But I wonder if this is intrusive seeing as we just don't ordinarily click?
I am just looking for suggestions..
