Summary

Laura Canty is a new mum.  

She has her beautiful baby boy, Arthur, and a wonderful husband. She has new mum friends on the local WhatsApp group, and everyone in her life is supportive and happy for her. But Laura doesn't see it this way.

In the weeks since her baby was born, like one in five women, Laura has developed post-natal depression. In fact, she has decided that the only way out of her current situation is for her to kill herself or her baby....

Laura Canty has written a moving and refreshingly honest memoir, full of truth and hope, to finally lift the lid on PND, revealing not only the little discussed realities of the illness - but also how an incredible NHS Mother and Baby Unit literally saved her and Arthur's lives.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Honest and Encouraging

I listened to this book in preparation for an interview in a Maternity and Neonatal Psychology Service. I learned a lot and appreciated the honesty of the writer's experience.

Brilliant book

A must listen to for anyone experiencing or supporting someone through the horrors of PND. Beautifully and honestly written, Laura Canty shares her journey with the listener in order to show them that they are not alone and that however dark the way forward looks, there is always hope.
