A Real Mum's Hilariously Honest Tales of Motherhood, Mayhem and Mental Health
'A wonderful book all mums should read!'
'A book to be shared the world over.'
' I do believe this book will save lives!'
'This book made me proud to be a woman'
'You see, pre-motherhood I had this image of the sort of motherhood I was going to have. Happy, confident and in total control, breezing through my perfect new mum life, clad in white linen with a smiley easy-going baby attached to my hip. But then, something happened.'
A moving, inspirational and at times hilarious book from best-selling author Olivia Siegl. Part-memoir, part guide, Bonkers follows Olivia's story of motherhood as she juggles two babies under two alongside two harrowing battles with Postpartum Depression and Postpartum Psychosis.
Olivia's refreshingly honest approach leaves no area of motherhood uncovered in her bid to empower women to be able to talk about all areas of motherhood - NO judgement!
Throughout the book, this engaging and straight talking author shares her story of motherhood and how she has since overcome what she bills as "the most harrowing times of her life" to prove that suffering with a mental health illness is by no means the end of the story. A must read for anyone in need of hope that they can get through even the darkest of times.
For every mum out there feeling lost in the wilderness. For every mum feeling pressure to be perfect. For every mum questioning if they are good enough. You are magnificent.
