Has your BF been diagnosed with depression? If he has was he prescribed medication and does he stay on it?
Most people that are depressed and do not wanted to be around their loved ones, also do not want to be around other people. I would try and talk calmy to him about
this. Perhaps his he stressing over being a new father and needs some reassuring from someone.
Perhaps a clergy figure, father, mother etc... even the family doc or gyn. Can help you both get over this change to responsibility.
You definately need to talk to someone about your anxiety. Your doctor would be the BEST place to start. It is not unusual for new mothers to feel this way. Especially with the lack of sleep you get and the worry of a new born.
If indeed it is depression and he has not received any help yet. There is not much you can do, until he is willing to want help.
The best thing you can do is take care of yourself and the baby. So you are there if he needs you. Remember, your health is primary for you and the baby.
Peace and strength
