Story

"I'd had a rough pregnancy and a traumatic labour". "I became incredibly depressed, weepy, anxious and beset by suicidal thoughts. I didn't feel like I knew what I was doing with my daughter. I stopped leaving my house and became obsessed with my daughter - I never put her down and was not happy unless I was holding her. I withdrew from my husband emotionally and refused to talk about any of my thoughts or feelings for fear of being seen as a failure".

Mary turned to CrossReach for help when her daughter was 3 months old. Even then, she found the path to support hard: "at the worst point of the depression, I would have used any valid excuse to avoid going to therapy".
After just a few sessions of caring professional therapy, Mary became "secure and confident as a parent and as a person" and her daughter is "happy and thriving".

Mary says: "I cannot think what would have happened to me, and my daughter, had I not been able to access CrossReach".
