We went through that too. I got through it ok without meds but I can see how that could be helpful or necessary for some people- there is a lot going on with your hormones and then caring for a new baby AND add grief to that- it's a lot!I felt like my focus through my next pregnancy was so wrapped up in making it through it with a living baby,sometimes my grief was put on the backburner, and so once my pregnancy was over, everything I had been bottling up came out.
In any case, what you are feeling is definitely normal.
