    A report from the charity, 4Children, says that a chronic lack of awareness of the symptoms of postnatal depression is leading to as many as 35,000 women suffering in silence each year. Forty nine percent of women affected did not seek any professional treatment at all. Thirty-three said that they were too scared to tell anyone because they were afraid of what might happen to themselves or their child.
