Felicia Boots: Postnatally depressed mother who killed her 14-month-old daughter and 10-week-old son will not face prison | Mail Online I was listening on the radio about this case,and i have to say i feel so sorry for all involved. The mind can be such an awful thing. His wife had been diagnosed with postnatal depression after the birth of both children. She had been prescribed antidepressant medication and her condition outwardly appeared to be improving. Hours before she killed her children she sent a photograph taken on her mobile phone of Lily to her husband, who took this as a sign that she was feeling better. He was unaware that she had stopped taking the medication because she was worried about its side effects while breast feeding despite reassurances from her doctor. Computer records show she made a series of Google searches about her concerns in the preceding weeks. 'I AM TRULY SORRY': FELICIA BOOTS HEARTBREAKING LETTER Felicia Boots counsel read a letter to the court from the mother, who said that she would never forget the events of May 9 - the day she killed her children. It read: 'May 9, 2012, is a day I will be eternally sorry for. 'It should never have happened. 'It troubles me more than anyone will ever know. 'Part of me will always be missing. 'I am a good person. 'I am a good mum and I never meant any of this to happen. 'I am truly sorry.' In a note found next to the bodies she questioned how she could have done such a thing. She wrote how she was scared and sorry and that her life started to fall apart a few weeks before. Her husband called the emergency services but paramedics were unable to save the children. His wife, who was unsteady and weak on her feet, was arrested. Mr Boots told officers at the scene that his wife was a good mother and he could not believe that she would do such a thing.
