In brief: Call your doctor/CNM
Call your doctor for an appointment.
You may have postpartum depression or anxiety that makes you feel like you are not bonding correctly. Your dr/midwife can speak to you about your symptoms and they can refer you if needed. Women who have had pregnancy complications may have an increased risk of ptsd (post-traumatic stress disorder) and it is important to get the right treatment.
