#260 Laura Dockrill On Postpartum Psychosis

Laura Dockrill is an award-winning author and illustrator.What Have I Done?is Laura's first book for adults. I have loved Laura's fiction and poems for years, and now this. I can already say it's one of the best memoirs I've ever read on mental health. It's about postpartum psychosis. It's moving, incredibly vivid and well written. Laura made me feel like I was standing in the corner of the hospital room with her when giving birth and then in her living room afterwards as she embarked on her road to recovery. The topic is so so important and it still feels so shrouded in secrecy, until now. I'm so glad this book exists. In this episode we discuss Laura's journey, recovery, what it's like when a raw blog article about your mental health goes viral, and why this book is a love letter to family and friends. If you'd like to read the article on Clemmie Telford's blog that we discuss in the interview, it is here: https://motherofalllists.com/2018/08/13/2018-08-13-postpartum-psychosis/ And if you'd like to buy Laura's book 'What Have I Done?' you can do so here: https://www.waterstones.com/book/what-have-i-done/laura-dockrill/9781529110210 Thanks for listening, and if you enjoyed this episode please do consider leaving a rating or review! xo See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
