Dorota, 27, from Hertfordshire in the UK, was suffering from a severe case of postpartum psychosis which led her to believe that she was 007.
She took on this new identity, believing she was a secret agent, and actually began scouring the countryside for a safe house.
According to Beyond Blue, postpartum psychosis (also known as postnatal or puerperal psychosis) is a rare mental health condition that affects a small number of women (one or two in every 1,000 mothers) in the first days or weeks after childbirth.
Dorota’s psychosis started just three months after giving birth to Zofia, when she was living in Hong Kong with her fiancé Sean O’Sullivan, 28.
Then on a trip to Poland to visit her family, her symptoms became worse.
“There was a radio competition to find a James Bond fan to go to the premiere and I thought, ‘Well, I am James Bond',” Dorota told The Mirror.
“From that moment I thought my mission was to save the world.”
After that Dorota's behaviour became more and more erratic, while she carried out her "mission".
“I even asked people to stash money away for me so that Zofia and I would be cared for if I failed in my mission to save the world,” she told the publication.

"My family noticed I was acting strangely, but they thought I was messing around at first."
Dorota began shopping erratically, spending over $3000 on presents for friends and family, and nearly purchasing a $48,900 car. Soon after, she became paranoid and began mistrusting her family.
