Story

I will be skydiving in Bridlington for Action on Postpartum Psychosis (APP) on Saturday the 30th of June. I have chosen this date to mark my nephew, Ethan’s, 1st birthday and a just over a year since my sister suffered with Postpartum Psychosis (PP). PP occurs around the time of birth and involves the sufferer experiencing serious hallucinations and/or delusions. Hayley was sectioned under the mental health act following the birth of Ethan due to the severity of this illness. She was lucky enough to be given a place in a Mother and Baby Unit in Leeds where she could be looked after by a psychiatric team whilst remaining with Ethan. They were accompanied 24 hours a day to ensure their safety and it is charities like APP that help campaign for these wonderful services. Hayley has since benefited from other APP services such as the use of other women’s stories to help process what has happened to her. Without this support Hayley wouldn’t have made the progress she has made in such a short space of time.  As a family also recovering from this traumatic time we have benefited from the resources APP provide.

The purpose of this skydive is not only to raise money for this important charity but to raise awareness of this serious illness. With more recognition of PP more women may be prevented from suffering and given the care they need earlier on.

We appreciate any donation you can make and can’t thank you enough for your support. Surely it’s at least worth a donation just to see me throw myself out of a plane?

Thank you!

Megan, Hayley and Family x
