Episode notes

Hi Anthems listeners, here's a podcast we think you'll love; it's called Zombiemum. When writer and illustrator Laura Dockrill first became a mum, the experience was life changing - but not in the way she was expecting. She woke up on her first Mother’s Day in a psychiatric ward, without a clue where she was, separated from her newborn, with a diagnosis of postpartum psychosis. Since her experience, she’s been on a mission to uncover the psychological effects of bringing a small person into this world and smash the stigmas associated with them. Each week Laura will be talking to guests from a range of different backgrounds and disciplines all with their own unique experience for some heart-breaking, heart warming, gut wrenching, generous, reassuring real talk. #Zombiemum
