POST NATAL ILLNESS
By Helen Auld
Soon after the birth of her daughter Isabelle, Helen started to experience panic attacks and faint spells. Despite several visits to her GP her condition showed no signs of improvement and Helen began to suspect that she was being misdiagnosed. Through the internet she found her way to a post natal illness forum and that's where she discovered her symptoms were common with other new mums. Motivated by this support she began treatment for post natal illness and is now enjoying a normal life with her new family.
