Suicide during pregnancy.

Suicides by pregnant women, new mothers under-reported

Nearly twice as many women commit suicide during pregnancy or the time around childbirth than previously thought, according to University of New South Wales researchers.

This is not good news and there is a significant amount of women who die as a result of late maternal suicides and homicides. This hardly looks like a civilised country and it means our women have lost all sense of wellbeing during pregnacy and this blog is about wellbeing and about getting there. We have to help girls and women get a better sense of self and support during pregnancy and wwe need immediate information as to the sorts of things which are bringing this sad situation about so we can get onto it.
