Extreme PND made me want to smother my baby

Postnatal depression affects as many as one in seven mums in the UK, however thousands of women try to ignore their symptoms for fear of being considered a bad mother.

Suzi Wood was one of these women, but as her depression worsened, she became so desperate that she made a plan to murder her three-week-old baby daughter Annabelle with a pillow.

Now, fully recovered from the postnatal depression and enjoying a healthy and loving relationship with her eight-month-old daughter, Suzi is speaking out about this crippling condition and why women shouldn't be ashamed to ask for help.
