Confessions of a Mad Mooer: Postnatal Depression Sucks by Robin Elizabeth gained media attention recently in the Daily Mail. Interviewed by Lauren Ingram, Robin discusses postnatal depression and her visit to a psychiatric hospital after the birth of her twins. Read the full article here.
Buy the book: Robin shares her experience with postnatal depression in her heartfelt, funny, and raw memoir – a wonderful read for anyone who has experienced postnatal depression, those who love true stories, those who want to gain insight into what some mothers go through, or simply if you are a mother, like myself, who identified with some of the feelings Robin had after becomong a mother. I did when reading the book. My kids are now 18 and 16 but I remember those feelings of inadequacy and constantly wondering whether I was doing the right thing. Becoming a mother is hard, beyond hard – one of the hardest things a woman will experience in her life, but also the most rewarding.
Thank goodness someone finally realised that Robin needed help as she is one of the most wonderful mothers I have ever met. Her journey of healing in Confessions of a Mad Mooer is inspiring.
