Dear Ms MO,
Relax. Yes, sometimes briefly, sometimes for a wee bit longer, some women can suffer from a Post-Natal Depression or Post-Natal Psychosis, and have such odd experiences. I gather that your sister had some such experience, but has ended up as well as ever. Although this is a possibility in any pregnancy, it's no more likely to happen to you than to anyone else ; and if it happens, both you and your family are already more alert to spotting it han most folks would be, so it can be recognized and treated appropriately immediately, with no likelihood of any bad consequences ; in the unlikely event that it does happen.
