21 year old mom postpartum depression and have been cheated on

by Tinika

I had three beautiful baby boys in the past three years all back to back. I have been going through my ups and downs with postpartum and to add another layer to the cake I found out that their father was cheating with his ex girl friend. I really need some insight on this problem.

You have had three children in three years which is a lot to contend with bodywise, no wonder you are depressed. Have you been to your doctor to get some help and have you family support.
Once you get your depression under control, then you will know what you have to do.

It is hard too if your partner has cheated on you and it shows that he has to do some growing up. If you have to part from him, you must go about doing it when you are feeling a bit better, and have somewhere to go in the meantime with the children.

Have you thought about getting some counselling as well, that is important so that you can get to sorting out where you are to go.
Do not be afraid to ask for help from your friends and to ask for some help with minding your children if you need some time out. You do not have to go through this alone, there is always somewhere you can go for assistance.

Thank you for contacting Positive Personal Growth. I am not certain of your home situation, whether you are still with the father of your children, whether he knows that you have discovered his affairs.

I guess the important question to answer is whether or not you intend to put up with this behaviour and stay with him? Does he deserve to be with you? Have you spoken to him about it? This is what you should do and there is no saying that he wont continue with seeing other women if he stays. Are you prepared to trust him? Only you can decide what you want in your life. Until you speak to him about this you are stuck in this situation, unless of course you decide to leave him without discussing things.

Good luck,
