In brief: Post-birth suicidal

Feelings are very serious.
Talk to your physician or a mental heath professional immediately. Depression and other mental health issues can be exacerbated by hormone changes and the significant increase of stress with a new baby. Previous mental health problems increase your risk. Suicidal feelings should always be taken seriously.
