It all started to show before the birth, she was constantly over exicted and then for two three weeks after until her mood just downed to the lowest I've ever seen anyone. She attempted to take her life and has to be watched all the time now, although she and baby are at home and she is on medication. I'm usually helping mums on here so the shoes really on the other foot today. I feel heart broken for her and her husband (who is being brilliant). I don't live anywhere near so can't physically help but just want to any little thing I can. Maybe the answers simple and there is nothing I can do but I just want to reach out to all mums who might have a better understanding of the condition than I do. If the least I can do is understand the condition the best I can then that's what I'll try and do.
