A pregnant mother-of-two who desperately wanted a daughter jumped from a cliff-top when she discovered the twins she was carrying were boys, a coroner's court has been told.
Anna Byrne, 35, a nurse from Dunboyne, County Meath, was left 'devastated' when ultrasound scans in March this year showed she would be having two more boys.
In the months before her death she noticed baby girls everywhere and avoided her friends - particularly those with daughters.

Like I said in the other thread if is a sad situation. It worries me when anybody posts about gender disappointment because it could result in this. She already had depression. It really isn't her fault as depression can and will make you do alot of things that you normally wouldn't do.



And I probably will get judged for this but I could see myself doing this while I was pregnant

Yeah, I agree. I think the press maybe jumping to conclusions.

Depression is a sad, horrible, painful disease that is sadly still so misunderstood.
