Family campaign for better support for new mums following suicide of Rebecca Kruza

We've been hearing from the mum of a Folkestone woman who took her own life less than a year after having a baby.

39 year-old Rebecca Kruza started suffering from anxiety and insomnia after giving birth to her son Henry in October 2016.

She visited her GP 12 times over the following eight months, and was given various medications and therapy.

But her mum Lyn Richardson found her dead at her home in Alkham near Dover in June 2017.

Her family are now campaigning to try and make sure all new mums get the support they need, especially if they start to struggle with mental health issues.
