For new mums who find that parenting is just not what they expected, the shock of their new reality can have devastating consequences. This is just what happened to PANDA Community Champion Laura after the arrival of her baby boy two years ago.
“I was conscious of not feeling the way I expected to feel. Straight after the birth, instead of feeling joy and a love I’d never felt before I was scared and lonely. And it got worse from there.”
