you should have disolved some valium type pills under your tongue and breathed deep and slow and sat and waited for it to gradually pass, dont you read the other posts where this method is often mentioned.
fear of being unable to look after babies or small children while panicky is common but the mothers always manage somehow
you can still function during a panic attack at a reduced level, for example they never cause drivers to crash their cars
there is no need to be taken to hospital for every panic attack but if you had gone they would only have given you an injection of valium
what methods are you making to recover?
You did nothing wrong and we are here to support you when you have a panic attack.
You have a pretty new baby, do you have any feelings of depression? You may want to talk to your physician re postpartum blues.
I know I had them and had no idea what was the matter with me. I would just panic and think, I am not very good at this mothering role.
WE care for you and hope you don't have any more severe attacks. Please stay with us and keep posting.
You are doing a great job. Some days are better than others for me.
I don't have a new baby to deal with so I am proud of your effort at overcoming the panic and anxiety.
Kudos for you. Hugs to you, keep posting.
