Dear Sendinfmylove,

Thank you for your update. I was so very happy to read this morning that your daughter is showing such wonderful signs of recovery and that you feel there is light at the end of the tunnel. I am so sorry that your daughter suffered with PP, as did my, now recovered, daughter, and that you and the rest of the family have been through some of the trauma with her. It is so difficult isn't it to watch a much beloved daughter suffer in such a devastating way at what should be the most joyful of times. Recovery can be up and down and of course all the lovely mums who suffer in this way are different. I was so grateful for the reassurance of APP and am glad that you found them too. I try and keep in mind that if 'we struggle sometimes it doesn't mean we are failing' and that 'this too shall pass'.

Congratulations again on the birth of a yummy grandchild, grandchildren,

are such a joy aren't they. Delighted for you, for your daughter and all the family that your daughter is more restored to herself, best wishes for her

continued good health. Lots to look forward to for you all.

Love and big hug from another grandmother.

Hi sendingmylove,

I am so pleased to read that your daughter is on the road to recovery and that the future is full of hope.

Its true this illness takes an incredible toll on the mother that suffers it and her loved ones, it is quite traumatic. But as your daughter is proof of, with time and care, mums can go back to the person they were before.

All the best for you and your family in the remaining part of the year, enjoy your grandchild and take good care.
