With more than 1 in 10 new parents experiencing post-natal depression and anxiety, and after suffering the traumatic birth of her son, and herself being diagnosed with post-natal anxiety and birth trauma, Anna Williamson uncovers the real thoughts, feelings and behaviours that many of us experience in those first few weeks and months after becoming a parent.

From `I'm struggling to love my baby' to `I miss my old life' and `Will I ever feel like "me" again?' to `I'm anxious about having sex' this book will help new parents cope with the often taboo topics that we ALL encounter.

A therapist in your pocket, meaning you don't have to face one of life's most momentous experiences alone, or fear being judged of the weird and often worrying irrational thoughts that plague our frazzled minds.

Mental health for new mums (and dads) is a thing -- a big thing - and it's time we all stopped suffering in silence. It takes time to adjust to this new identity and role - whether it's making new friends, coping with changing relationships, breast and bottle feeding anxiety, going back to work worries, or the whole shift being a new parent poses mentally.

Breaking Mum and Dad is a little pocket guide of empathy, sympathy and above all, hope.
