Re: Missing woman and infant

The police stopped every car on the way to the highway in Brunnen on Thursday afternoon and looked in, including mine. I was wondering what/who they were looking for. They didn't say anything.

I hope they will find her and the little one soon. Let's pray she didn't commit suicide or anything like that.

Edit: I meant to say Wednesday afternoon.

Re: Missing woman and infant

Well, that's nice to know that they're making such an effort to find them!

But yeah, I thought the same thing... worrying about suicide. Her baby is still a newborn and I'm worried that maybe she was suffering the "baby blues" or postpartum depression.

Can only hope for the best at this point, though...

Re: Missing woman and infant

They found her. Terrible tragedy.
news in German

I am thinking about her family. What a terrible thing to happen. It was as we already suspected.

Re: Missing woman and infant

My German is not good enough to read the entire article, but I think it says that she did indeed commit suicide (and took her baby along with her)...?

So incredibly sad...

I assume it's probably due to extreme postpartum depression.

Honestly, I think that hospitals should give women a 24-hour phone number to call for emergency psychological services after they give birth. Between the lack of sleep, the stress of having to take care of the baby and the crazy drop in hormones, which all lead to depression, I just think that it might help a lot of women.

Yes, extended suicide they call it. The poor woman obviously didn't have anyone she could turn to or would understand. I went through this and I know how hard it is, you are too ashamed to admit that you are not all happy and if you do, people will tell you not to kick such fuss over nothing.

Yeah, I also went through some pretty heavy depression right after our baby was born. Thankfully, the worst of it only lasted a few days, but WOW. Some pretty crazy thoughts went through my head (though nothing that verged on harming my baby). But you're right -- it's so difficult because everyone seems to expect us to be so happy and elated because of the birth, but inside, we're often screaming for help.

Possibly, but then again , a severly depressed, desperate person may not be thinking logically enough to make a phone call, especially if they are feeling guilty at not coping. We are frequently conditioned to think we are supposed to cope with the hormonal changes, the utter tiredness, the isolation, the anxiety of caring for a new little person....

I am inclined to think that more face to face support is what is needed, especially for the mother of a newborn, but actually for the partner as well. Too often new mothers are living in daily isolation from the support of extended familiy or a caring local community. Fathers too, can feel helpless and hopeless at this time.

That's true. Face-to-face support would make much more sense. Sadly, though, it's so difficult for many new mothers to leave the house (without their baby) to make such an appointment. So perhaps it would be nice if they could have someone come to the mother's home...

I remember when my baby was first born, there was a really nice Hebamme that would come here every few days, for the first few weeks. I remember feeling so comforted having her here, but I never really felt that she was here to provide emotional support in any way.

Re: Missing woman and infant

This is very sad. I think the system could do more to help women after they give birth.
Women who have just become a mum, need help to cope with all the pressure and stress. Some are lucky and have help from the family, others find themselves alone with the baby not knowing how to handle it and we have this tragic ends.
Poor girl and little baby.

Could you make yourself a bit more clear? I'm afraid I don't quite understand your post.

Realistically TWO possibilities

A) she drove, by accident, over a cliff somewhere somehow
B) she somewhere drove, by accident, into the lake

BOTH things are horrible and gruesome but the most likely explanation

in case of BOTH ways, police will find them within two days

I see, you didn't notice that they found both her and the infant dead.
