In honour of Mother’s Day Julie and Michelle focus their conversation on topics related to maternal mental health. They reflect on their own first-time experiences of becoming moms and discuss the challenges they faced including postpartum depression and anxiety, the shame of not being able to breastfeed, guilt about going back to work and the very real struggle of rediscovering their lost identities after bringing babies into the world.
