Jaydyne Found It Very Difficult To Love Her Baby

Duration: 01:43

Even stay at home mums can unwittingly create long term problems for their children if they don’t form a close, affectionate bond with their children. This might seem the most natural thing in the world – but up to 20% of mums suffer from post-natal depression... which can prevent mothers from bonding with their babies. Jaydyne Flanders found it very difficult to show affection and love towards her new baby son Jaiden – a problem that, had it not been diagnosed and resolved, could have led to serious behavioural problems later on in his life.
