Or are you feeling lonely? Tearful? Overwhelmed? Like you can’t cope?



Don’t worry, I promise YOU ARE NOT ALONE.


I have been there. 

And today, I am happier than I’ve ever been.


Would you like to join me here? 

Then make yourself at home and stick around. 



Warm welcome, beautiful!

Who am I?

First and foremost, I am a postnatal depression survivor. Frankly, I cannot even start to describe how extremely dark and dangerous this illness can be. 


PND is a demon that possesses your mind and you suddenly have no power over your thoughts or deeds anymore. 


It was the worst, darkest nightmare I could not wake up from. It was indeed the worst experience of my life and something I don't wish anyone to ever have to go through. 


But sadly, I know I am not the only PND survivor out there. Far from it! 


There are so many mums who SUFFER IN SILENCE. 

So many families who lose their mothers (and fathers) to this killing illness...

"The problem is that our expectations about motherhood are not realistic."

Nevertheless, things don't have to go as far as depression. Becoming a mum is a massive change no one prepared us for. And it is this tremendous shock that causes every single new mother is at risk. 


There is no wonder though. 


Everywhere you look you see happy mums posting happy pictures of their babies and experiencing 'the best time of their lives'. The media and environment feed us by the illusion that motherhood is nothing but happiness from the first moment.


So of course, if you don't feel happy, why would you want to talk about it?


With my work, I help new parents to set clear expectations, support them on their journey, and show them how they can move towards happy and fulfilling motherhood. I also want it to be general knowledge what (early) motherhood is really about so no new mum ever has to feel like a failure again! 


Am I crazy to think I can achieve that? 


Maybe. But I know I won't stop until I do.
