Yesterday we focused on the amazing story of Heather and her experience with and recovery from postpartum psychosis.

And then this:

Amother in San Antonio killed her two young children, ages 1 and 3, on Tuesday.


A mother in Edmonton Canada killed her two young children, aged 9 months and 2, on Tuesday as well.

Did these tragediesstem from postpartum psychosis? Everyone will assume so, of course, regardless of whether that's the case. Some media reports have already mentioned it.

That bugs me. Not every case of postpartum psychosis ends up in a tragedy, and not every situation where a mother kills her child is due to postpartum psychosis.

I guess we'll have to see how this unfolds …
