Postpartum psychosis: Affected parents speak out
Article here. Excerpt:
'Women are more at risk of severe mental illness after giving birth than at any other time in their lives.
In the worst cases it can lead to postpartum psychosis, also known as puerperal psychosis, a mental illness which affects one in 500 new mothers and can result in suicide or them killing their baby.
BBC Newsnight has spoken to people affected by this devastating but poorly understood condition, which often goes undetected because doctors and midwives can fail to recognise the symptoms.
"I put my hand around his tiny neck, not yet strong enough to hold up his own head, and began to squeeze. I wasn't trying to harm him. I knew I mustn't do that, but I wanted to know if I was capable of it."
Jo knew something was badly wrong, but she was too scared to seek help because she thought her children would be taken away from her.
Without treatment she became sicker and began planning how to kill both herself and her two young sons.'
