Baby Zara is now only 14 weeks, born in Australia. I am writing this from the grand parents point of view. The mOther is age 24. Lived in Australia for 10 years, with frequent visits to the uk to see the family. She met her partner 4 years ago and they were both very happy until 1 month prior to the baby been born. We just put it down to stresses of becoming parents. 3 months after baby Zara was born the mother became unwell with PP. she was admitted to hospital without baby and only was able to see baby Zara every other day. Her partner blamed her parents for the illness which resulted in bad feelings between her partner and the mothers parents. Her partner did not understand the illness. The mother was in hospital for nearly 3 weeks, and she returned to her partners home and lived with his parents. The partner still blamed us for her illness and he wanted the mother to have no further communication with her parents. This made matters worse for the mother due to the closeness she had. He made her choose which relationship she wanted while she was still ill. The day came where they separated but he decided he would keep the baby as there was no court order yet in place. Again this made her worse. For over a week after they separated he used the baby as bait. The mother took it upon her self to get the baby in he care. A few days followed and the father snatched the baby back. Several treaths of volience followed and resulted in her ex partner assaulting her family members. These events made the mother worse. We decided to calm the situation down and help the mother recover. We went to the uk to see her family but the mother is now pining for her baby. The situation is that the ex partner will not allow her see her daugher until a court order is made which could be months. Her illness is getting better, but doctors feel she is half way through PP.
