Maternal Mental Health: Joanne Masding, Katie MacLeod Peters, Rachel Nolan
Talking about mental health and motherhood with other mothers working with maternal support, birth education and art. We each talked about our professional and lived experiences of what the reality of early motherhood is for many vs the magical portrayal of a blissful experience. We touch upon subjects ranging from postnatal depression, the cost of child care, the need for support and structural inequalities to name a few.
