My story

Hi, I am running a hot and hilly marathon in Madrid on Sunday 28th April this year. Just before Christmas a family friend of mine tragically died following a brief illness I had not previously heard of, Postpartum Psychosis (PP). She had had her first child, a beautiful girl, just 5 weeks beforehand. I have since learned that Postpartum Psychosis is a term that covers a group of mental illnesses characterised by the sudden onset of psychotic symptoms following childbirth. As you will see on the charity website, APP is a charity set up with the following aims: To provide up to date information to women who have experienced PP & their families, to facilitate research into all aspects of PP, to facilitate a peer support network for women & their families, to increase awareness of PP, its symptoms, management & impact among health professionals & the general public, and to advocate for improved services for women & their families. With many people I know starting families, and with the sad loss of a friend, I feel that it is a very real and worthy cause which will help raise awareness of Postpartum Psychosis, and what can be done to prevent tragedy. Thank you so much for all your support, and thank you for any donations - I will be thinking of all of you who have supported the charity as I race around Madrid at the end of this month. Lots of love, Robin
