Six months after the birth of her son, Emma Jane Unsworth finds herself in the eye of a storm. Nothing - from pregnancy to birth and beyond - has gone as she expected. She's swapped all night benders for grazed labia and Whac-a-Moling haemorrhoids. How did she end up here?
In this brave, vital account of postnatal depression, Emma tells her story of despair and recovery. She tackles the biggest taboos around motherhood and mental health, from botched stitches and bleeding nipples to anger and shame. How does pregnancy adapt our brains? Is postnatal depression a natural reaction to the trauma of modern motherhood? And are people's attitudes finally changing?
After the Storm is a celebration of survival, holding out a hand to women everywhere.'Hilarious, heart-breaking and wise' Leah Hazard, midwife and author
