Sally suffered with postpartum psychosis following the birth of her daughter in 2015.
It was a terrifying experience that Sally has fought hard and shown immense determination to overcome. Two years on, Sally and friend Ruth will plunge into a freezing cold Welsh lake this summer in celebration of her recovery and to raise money for APP. They say:
“We are setting ourselves this challenge in solidarity with the incredible bravery of every single woman who has experienced this frightening illness. We also want to honour the partners, families and friends who are affected. Our aim is to raise oodles of cash to fund further research, better information and support for sufferers of PP. So please, please dig deep and support a charity that helps women and their families recover from this devastating illness, thank-you!”
Please support their Big Welsh Swim.
