I wrote an article about how we can lose our identities as mothers, and how to get them back again. I was delighted to be featured in Selfish Mother's “Great and the Good” section with this one http://www.selfishmother.com/identity-how-to-get-mum-back/

I’m a big fan of the Facebook group The Motherload, and I wrote a blog for them about my experience of PND, particularly relating to my feelings of anger and shame. It was a tricky and emotional blog to write, but I’m pleased it helped to raise awareness and help people feel less alone https://the-motherload.co.uk/shame-pnd-anger-demons/
