In the first six weeks after her son was born, Jamila Rizvi felt isolated, exhausted and frustrated - as if the world she knew had disappeared forever. Then her salvation came in the form of a letter. A dear friend - who had been there herself - wrote to tell her that she would get through this. That she was seen and supported. That she was not alone. Now Jamila wants to pay it forward to other new mothers.

Very depressing accounts of mums struggling to cope. The process of writing these expletive-laden accounts must have been cathartic for the authors, but I didn't find them at all helpful or encouraging as we prepare for parenthood. Rather, they just left me in a bad mood.
