Thanks for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page.
In 2015 Sally suffered with postpartum psychosis after the birth of her daughter. It was a terrifying experience that Sally has fought hard and shown immense determination to overcome. Two years on, Sally and Ruth are now attempting a 3km open water swim in a freezing cold lake in celebration of her recovery! 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!
Ruth and Sally xx
