    Med. Note
    • Diagnosis was based on history of symptoms. The doctor was involved in treatment the last 10 days of her life, although he did not see her on the last two days.

      Insanity comes after the exhaustive process of pregnancy and then the labor to birth a child, followed by the demanding care of the new infant, compounded by the stresses of caring for the rest of the family. It usually sets in during the 10 days following child birth, and comes from exhaustion, bodily changes, lack of sleep and nutrition, to the point the woman suffers a complete physical breakdown. In this broken state she is melancholy and suffers from unexplained rage toward those things that are dear to her, threatening their safely and life as well as her own. It was considered a form of insanity because of the violent outbursts and incoherent speech--Rev. Clinton Macomber.
