MOTHERHOOD – THE UNSPOKEN IS THE BOOK I WISH SOMEONE HAD GIVEN ME WHEN I BECAME A MUM.
I am convinced that one of the main triggers for postnatal depression is unrealistic expectations about motherhood. Media and the environment feed us with the illusion that motherhood is nothing but pure joy and happiness. However, this is often not the case so if a mother doesn’t feel happy right away, she can easily fall into depression. But even if things do not go as far as depression, becoming a mother is nothing like we had expected and without relevant information and support, this can easily lead to feelings of guilt and self-doubt.
Motherhood The Unspoken offers real stories from 10 different first-time mums who talk openly about their experiences as first-time mums, what challenges they faced along the way, and how they coped. Each mum also shares priceless tips and personal supportive message for fellow new mums at the end of her story.
In the book, I also talk about my personal experience with postnatal depression. I share my innermost thoughts and emotions I experienced during pregnancy and early motherhood, how I felt into the trap of postnatal depression, and how I managed to come out the other side stronger and happier than ever before.
All in all, Motherhood – The Unspoken offers an honest, raw insight into the life of a new mum and offers plenty of support and reassurance to new mums. It talks about what the majority of mothers find out too late and is undoubtedly a wonderful gift for every expecting or new mother.
