Today, I have a special piece of audio to share with you from the new podcast Zombiemum.
When illustrator and writer Laura Dockrill became a mom, the experience was life-changing, but not in the way she was expecting. Laura's delivery was traumatic, and afterwards, she was diagnosed with postpartum psychosis. She experienced some aspects of motherhood she hadn’t expected. And when your experience of parenthood doesn’t end up being like what you read about in books, it can be really isolating.
That's why Laura created the Zombiemum podcast. Every Tuesday, Laura will talk to parents who also didn’t have the picture-perfect intro to parenting they'd anticipated. This podcast will normalize conversations about mental health and parenthood.
Whatever you’re going through, you’re not alone.
