On Sunday the 24th of November 2013, 12 days after giving birth to my son, I got sectioned under the mental health act for suffering with Postpartum Psychosis.
On Saturday the 24th of November 2018 I met a group of inspirational women, who had all experienced Postpartum Psychosis through the amazing charity Action on Postpartum Psychosis
Up until this year I had never met someone who had pp (postpartum Psychosis) except when I was in the mother and baby unit which was all a blur, making me feel quite alone at times.
It was so nice to meet a group of women who understood exactly what I had been through, hearing their experiences and seeing how far everyone had come.
This is only a small amount of women in the uk who have had postpartum psychosis, the charity support so many more each year.
There was a feeling of love, power and determination in the air the whole day along with lots of laughs and lots tears.
Every single woman there had the same goals. To break the stigma of mental illnesses, rise above the destruction and devastation postpartum psychosis brings, raise awareness of it and support other women who are struggling.
I feel so privileged to have met such amazing and strong women.
