By being like You: Hopefully she is seeing a mental health professional for more than just medication - if not, help her find one.
Be patient and try to stay with her at both extremes after making the place "baby-proof" safety-wise. Doing something together or just being together may keep the most extreme times less so. Both you you (and any others) need to be safe - so if you can't achieve that, go to an er.
