New mothers who kill: postpartum depression

New mothers who kill: postpartum depression

It has been observed that some women, soon after giving birth, suffer from such overpowering oppressive depression that it can lead to suicide or even murder. There is an old saying, "If mama ain't happy, ain't nobody happy." New research throws light on this widespread problem of deep depression following the birth of a child.

Extensive research has shown a clear connection between brain levels of the neurotransmitter serotonin and violence, depression, and suicide. As we have seen, there is also a clear connection between a low intake of N-3 oils and low brain serotonin levels. In addition, low dopamine, also seen in N-3 oil deficiency, is associated with a loss of excitement about life, making the world seem dull, uninteresting, and dark. Under such conditions, every day is filled with drudgery and soon overwhelming fatigue sets in.

Extremes of this deficiency may result in situations in which the mother may kill herself or murder her children and even her spouse.
