Maternal suicide the main cause of death in new mums


In the UK and Ireland, maternal suicide is the leading cause of direct deaths occurring within a year after the end of pregnancy.

In 2018 a report by MMBRACE found around 20 out of 120 deaths of women between the periods of 6 weeks and one year after pregnancy was due to suicide.

This equates to 1 in 6 women – Bronagh was one of those women, and this is her story.
