Get a psych referral: This could be a postpartum depression. It might help if you could get your pcp or even ob-gyne to refer you to a psychiatrist for evaluation and appropriate treatment.

Focus on the outcome--- your baby not how the baby got here. Avoid online communities who encourage this kind of negative thinking.
