This is what happened to me after the birth of my second daughter, Lexi. I already had one daughter, Mia, so I expected Lexi to slot into my life easily enough. I had done this once before so surely it would all be smooth sailing second time round. Sadly I was wrong and was hit with crippling post-natal anxiety which was a complete shock. I had my two, beautiful, much longed for, daughters. How could I be feeling like this? Of course, postnatal mental health problems don’t discriminate between first and second pregnancies. They can hit you regardless of whether this is your first, second or fifth baby.
