Your daughter is very ill. She has one of the worst postpartum cases. I had it after my 1st child, he was still in the hospital(premature) So he was never in any danger. On my third day home, I heard a voice, where as I got the phone book out, made an appt with a shrink, then called my husband and mother to tell them what happened. Mine went away after 6mo., but I never heard anymore voice's, except that one time.

The bottom line in her case, is she needs to be hospitalized. She might need to stay for months, but you have to do this! If you want to save her life and possibly her KID's. She is showing all the symptoms of the women who drown her children in the bathtub, so they would all go to heaven. She's crying out to you, you must do something immediately. God bless you, her, and the whole family. It's a family disease, the whole family suffers along with her.
