Postpartum Psychosis Survival & Maternal Mental Health

Patient Leader

I am Natachia Barlow Ramsey and I call myself the Postpartum Psychosis Survivor and Loser. I am the first woman to start speaking publicly about losing her child to a Postpartum Mood Disorder. In 1999 I went undiagnosed with Postpartum Depression with Psychotic Features (Postpartum Psychosis). I lost my son. I was tried for his death, was found Not Criminally Responsible and was remanded to the Commissioner of DHHS for years. I finally gained complete freedom in 2008 and in 2012 found my voice to start speaking about what happened. For myself and other women like myself. I Finally Felt Ready... Surviving Postpartum Psychosis and Losing a Piece of Myself -

She is candid, she's brave, she's amazing to so many women. There are so many women who are beginning to start talking about their experience now with postpartum psychosis and what their thoughts were really like because she came forward. I almost don't have the words to express.  — Shay

In a world of people who sit back and say nothing, she has chosen to stand up and be heard. I could never do what she is doing. Whenever I read her blog it brings tears to my eyes. This world needs more people like her. I know she is controversial but the power behind what she is saying. Bless Her.  — Rachael

This is an incredible woman who has had such a difficult life. Not many people I know would get out of bed for the things she has endured. She talks about her struggle with Postpartum Psychosis with such bravery and honesty.  — Victoria

A must go to site for any woman who is having a baby. Not to scare you but to educate you on what can happen. A heartbreaking look at the effects of suicide from generations leading to Psychosis. This is real. She speaks from the heart and it resonates with so many. She is so real, she will steal your heart.  — Deborah

This lady talks. She is the first woman to come forward when no one else would. She can be funny and endearing and brutally honest. She says what everyone else is thinking. She so deserves to win the Best Kept Secret just so more woman can hear what she has to say. More people need to hear her story, she needs to win  — Cynshey

More people need to hear her story. I don't think I would have gotten out of bed if my mother killed herself. Then my grandfather. To end up in an abusive relationship and be tried for the death of her son and sent away two years later to a Mental Hospital???! Now to talk about to help other women. Just not enough adjectives for this woman.  — Maribella
