Laura Dockrill

Author and fellow podcaster Laura Dockrill joins Ashley to talk about what she faced after giving birth including how she woke up on her first Mother’s Day in a psychiatric ward, without a clue where she was, separated from her newborn, with a diagnosis of postpartum psychosis.

This episode comes with a trigger warning as we will be discussing postnatal mental health, postpartum psychosis, suicidal ideation and traumatic birth.
