Breastfeeding and depression medicine

So I have sever depression and ADHD. I stopped all my medication during my pregnancy just because there is no 100% safe medicine to take while pregnant. And for the most part I can cope with my ADHD, but my depression is absolutely terrible...so my question:

After baby is here, will I be able to take my depression medicine and breast feed? I have my heart set on breast feeding and I feel selfish if I cant just because of my own reasons...

I have severe anxiety and depression.  I stopped taking my med when I found out I was pregnant because I didn't want to risk it even though the dr's all said its safe.  I've recently had to start it again because my anxiety got too severe :(  I'm only 9 weeks :(
