"They variously reported feeling funny and strange, abnormal and slow, suffering from head spins and feeling dehydrated.

"When some of them told you they were feeling abnormal, you offered them some Panadol, which they took."

Judge Chivell said two of the children fell asleep straight away, but the other two took a bit longer, before she attempted to take her own life.

"You contacted a friend of yours and told her what had happened. She contacted emergency services and later she came to the house," he said.

Mama is imprisoned for wasting her children ' s chocolate milk with sleeping pills before trying to take her own life. A mother of four served the drugged drinks before trying to take her own life. The children suffered from dizziness and dehydration after taking a high dose.

"You told him what you had done. He woke up the other children. Each of them were taken to and later examined at the Women's and Children's Hospital," he said.

The court was told the dosage given to the children was "above the normal therapeutic level" but not so high that "extremely pronounced effects were produced".

"This is an extremely sad case, not only for you, but for your entire family," Judge Chivell said.

"It is clear that at the time of the offending, you had reached a crisis point as a result of your declining mental health.

"You had ceased takingantidepressant medicationwith the approval of your general practitioner in late 2017, about six months prior to the incident.

"You had been taking that medication for a period of about 20 years prior to that."

Judge Chivell said the mother's offending was "premeditated" because she told a psychiatrist that she planned to put her children to sleep and take her own life three days beforehand.

He said the offending was a "gross breach of trust".

"The nature of your relationship with the victims was such that they trusted you unreservedly," he said.

"They had every right to expect you to look after them."

Judge Chivell accepted that the mother was remorseful and posed a low risk of reoffending.

He backdated the sentence to the time she was taken into custody in March 2018, meaning she would be eligible for parole "within a fairly short period of time".
