Has anyone had their child taken away for post partum and things you did as a child?

I just need support and kind words please don’t be mean… I am wondering if any moms have had their baby taken because of what they claim as bad postpartum depression … And they brought up things in court that I did when I was a child in my teen years. I am currently only seeing my baby supervised, but I have custody of my other kids not supervised. I’m so upset, and None of this is fair, and I don’t understand any of this. I’m doing everything I have been asked to do by GAL and will continue to. I want my baby back, and I will do everything I can to get her back. Please just give me some support, moms. We got back to court in a few months.

Why am I reading this and thinking there is more to this story? A judge has to deem you as an unfit parent in order for your child to have been taken away. They would not base it off of something you did when you were a child. So something isnt quite adding up…

Hang in there and keep doing everything they want you to do. We all have made mistakes not knowing what yours were I really can’t make a opinion one way or another. Just stay strong and believe in yourself.

I’ve learned that attorneys will attack you for anything! Steal candy when you were five? Well then you’re a criminal!!! Even Gals can be your worst enemy. It’s the burden of proof that’s important. Make them prove it and don’t be scared. Fight for you and your children’s rights because no one will fight for you but you

Who intiated this?? Someone must have thought you were a danger to your baby. Judges RARELY take babies from their moms for depression. They would intiate treatment etc. There is much more to the story. If you want advice thats real, be 100% real

I know a woman who had post partum depression, and a mental health worker convinced her to give up her child to adoption. She deeply regretted it. I don’t know about losing a child due to things done when you were a child. If those were actual crimes done as a child, that record should have been sealed. I hope you have good legal representation, and a mental health counselor that is truly supportive.

What is the reason they took the baby exactly

Nope never had anything but joy when I had my boys and never had my children involved in any custody issue.

I would say this Dont write anything on public FORUM like this because it can be used against you in court .

What ever you post on facebook is considered public and its out on social media and it can be used against you in court .

No one knew much about post partum depression back 30 years ago when I had it… You need alot of support… You’ve nothing to be ashamed of… You are a good person… Fight for your child back. :heart:

I truly hope you get your boy back, sending all my love and luck to you. You can do this!

Love and light. Keep your head up, you got this

That seems very unfair to be using things from your childhood against you. I’m sorry that you are going through this.

Depends on what happened as a child. How bad was the ppd? Was it severe as to cause concern for the safety of the child? This seems unfair
