Post Natal Depression

This might be one that irks some, but I thought it would be interesting to see other people's thoughts. If not appropriate please feel free to remove.

All too often, I read news stories of Mother's harming their children due to PND.

How do you feel about this? Should the Mother be sent to prison? Should she be hospitalised? Is it her fault or the fault of her Dr/midwife? Is it no-ones fault?

Please discuss.

It depends. In a situation like Andrea Yates several people were at fault. I don't believe she deserved prison; institutionalized, yes.
