Case Studies Case Study 1: Lucinda Okiro Lucinda Okiro presented to the perinatal mental health service to day for a mental health assessment with her daughter Emily(aged eight months). She and Emily were both well-groomed but Emily was wearing a short sleeved ones i.e on a cold day. Lucindawasreferredforanurgentappointmentbyhermidwifeatherantenatalclinic. Lucinda complained of feeling frightened and very unhappy since she found out she was pregnant with her second child. She has known about this pregnancy for one month and is now ten weeks pregnant. Lucinda is a 22-year-old woman who gave birth to her first child, Emily, eight months ago. There were complications when Emily was born as she was a posterior presentation and labour was prolonged (12 hours). Eventually, Emily was born by a forceps extraction because although the head could be seen, the labour was not progressing. It took Lucinda a long time to feel physically ready to care for Emily. She also said she is exhausted caring for Emily and is still having difficulties sleeping even though Emily was now in a better routine. When speaking about her difficulties caring for Emily, Lucinda becomes tearful and stares at the door, wringing her hands.
Lucinda immigrated to Sydney from Ghana in 2017 to study accounting and met her partner, Jerome (aged 24 years) who is also from Ghana, at her church. Jerome works in the local supermarket and is also studying accounting. Although he is very happy to share the care of Emily when he is at home, he has to work long hours as he is the only person who is able to bring in a wage. Lucinda hoped that her mother, who she misses very much, might come to Sydney to help her but there was not enough money to pay for her mother’s air ticket. Lucinda says she has no other family in Australia and although Jerome’s family are supportive, they live in Port Macquarie.
At the beginning of her second year at university, Lucinda was shocked to find she was pregnant but continued studying up until she gave birth. She realized after Emily was born that she would have to defer her studies for one year. She says that she feels guilty that she can’t help Jerome more by working. Lucinda is now very upset that she will have to take more time o? studying and working because she is having another baby. She is also very worried and scared about the birth. When she thinks about the birth, Lucinda starts to feel very anxious and finds that she has trouble breathing and when she told the midwife about this, the midwife referred her for further assessment.
She is also finding that she feels very unmotivated and that she really doesn’t want to get out of bed in the morning. This makes her feel worse because she believes she is not being a good mother to Emily. Lucinda says that if she feels like this with one baby, she has no idea how she could cope with another baby. Sometimes Lucinda wonders whether Emily and Jerome would be better off if she was not around but knows that she must try to keep going for the sake of her unborn baby. Today she scored 12 on the Edinburgh Perinatal Depression Scale.
She denied thinking about harming herself on question 10. However, she believes that she just feels a little bit worse every day and worries that when the baby is born, she may think differently about whether she needs to remain with her family as the wife and mother. Lucinda says that she feels very lonely and really doesn’t know where to turn to get help.
