Thanks for using this forum...

Consult a psychologist/psychiatrist to come up with a diagnosis ..if there is high chance of a disorder its advisable to debate about having a second child as certain drugs are not very conducive for children...If you are having depression you may be started on anti psychotic drugs to help you out of the situation...with a history of disorder in your family you should try and and do stress relieving excersises and keep yourself calm and poised..keep a good lifestyle and follow a set routine to avoid having time to get depressed,....

take care...
