Symptoms of this anxiety are:

- Fear of dying
Take care of you. Try to get rest any time that you can and keep a good diet.
Ask for help. Part of being a good momma is knowing when to ask for help. Don't be proud or afraid of asking for help. In order to get better, family support and help from friends is a huge part.
Talk it out. Have someone who you can confide in and talk to them about how you are feeling. Joining groups with postpartum depression, anxiety or OCD is a huge help. Women don’t realize quite how many other women are experiencing the same feelings.
Get yourself outside. Get a stroller, put your baby in a stroller and get outside! Fresh air is the best thing for you and your baby. It is not good to be cooped up in the house, that will just fuel the fire.
