The woman’s solicitor Philip Van den Berghe says that his client understands what she has done. “She is deeply regretful and wishes she could turn back the clock”, Mr Van den Berghe told journalists.
However, he adds "A psychiatric examination of my client will play an important role in the case and will decide whether my client was suffering from post-natal depression. Her perfectionism and the fact that she had three children in four years will have played a big role here”, Mr Van den Berghe added. According to her solicitor, the woman enjoys the continued support of her family and friends.
"There have been a very many gestures of support for my client. This is why were are giving a press conference later today to show that the bond between the two families is still strong”.
