NHS apologise for death of Diana

From the day Diana Major gave birth to her daughter Sofia, she began to show the signs of severe post-natal depression - chronic anxiety, delusions and self-harm.

Her husband told staff at the psychiatric unit in Kent thatt she was a suicide risk -- but she still managed to take her own life. Today, Adam Major described the actions of staff as "unforgivable". Ria Chatterjee reports.

Spotting the signs in others

If you're worried that someone you know is suffering from Postnatal Depression, here's a guide to how to spot the signs.

  • They frequently cry for no obvious reason
  • They have difficulties bonding with their baby
  • They seem to be neglecting themselves – for example, not washing or changing clothes
  • They seem to have lost all sense of time – often unaware if 10 minutes or two hours have passed
  • They lose all sense of humour and cannot see the funny side of anything
  • They worry something is wrong with their baby, regardless of reassurance

If you think someone you know has postnatal depression, encourage them to open up and talk about their feelings to you, a friend, GP or health visitor.

Postnatal depression needs to be properly treated and isn't something you can just snap out of.


Symptoms of Postnatal Depression

Key symptoms are:

  • a persistent feeling of sadness and low mood
  • loss of interest in the world around you and no longer enjoying things that used to give pleasure
  • lack of energy and feeling tired all the time

  • disturbed sleep, such as not being able to fall asleep during the night and then being sleepy during the day
  • difficulties with concentration and making decisions
  • low self-confidence
  • poor appetite or an increase in appetite/"comfort eating"
  • feeling very agitated or alternatively very apathetic
  • feelings of guilt
  • thinking about suicide and self-harming
  • feeling unable to look after the baby
  • too anxious to leave the house
  • thoughts about harming the baby
