Am I normal?

I am grateful to my good friend Neil Foley, for telling me about this Radio 4 programme 'Am I Normal?' looking at postnatal depression.

If you ask a woman who's just had a baby, have you felt sad or miserable in the last seven days, there's a fair chance she'll say yes.

So are we now better at identifying and helping women who are depressed post-natally or are we in danger of turning a normal, if bumpy period of psychological adjustment into an illness?

Vivienne Parry talks to psychiatrists and several mothers about what they think is normal in the post natal period.

Neil is great if you need information - on anything!
