Maternal Suicide

A report published at the end of December found post partum psychosis to be the leading cause of maternal death.

Geraldine Wheeler, who suffered from post partum pschosis after the birth of her second child, speaks about her experience.

Dr Margaret Oates, senior lecturer and consultant psychiatrist at Queens Medical Centre, Nottingham, and author of Why Mothers Die, a chapter in a recently published report on maternal deaths by the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, outlines their findings.
