Goodness: There are over 20 drugs for depression, . It depends on your history, etc, but using a low dose medication for sleep can be helpful, some evidence that replacing estrogen can help; psychotherapy can be very good too, don't believe too much of your downside thinking.

PPD: Think Group: In addition to psychotherapy, try to explore group therapy or meet ups. This can be in a formal setting like a postpartum support group or a less formal local mom meet up. One of the goals is to increase your social support network and avoid taking on PPD alone.
