She looked worried when I came round, but as soon as she knew I was all right, she’d laugh. She would run from one room to the other at night time and I’d go to pick her up and cuddle her and she’d run away again to another corner.

It may also inhibit women from encouraging their children to talk about it (as well as dilemmas over the appropriate balance between ‘bringing it out’ and ‘letting her forget’ to resume normality).
