Helloooo! Sarah Golding here. Hope you’re doing ok in this....current phase of our quirky lives..... Cos. It is a phase isn’t it? Just as the body is flooded with hormones to make life, support life, to give birth?
We'll get through this huh?
Like Gabby does. Like Lara has.

Our focus for the next few weeks is peri natal and post natal depression. The wonderful Lara Parker’s Gabby is the focus of our audiofiction, and finds out she is expecting again, and SHE IS NOT HAPPY AT ALL. We hear how her first pregnancy with Daisy nearly broke her, and just why she ‘doesn’t want’ to be pregnant with this baby. We hear the true life experience of Lara’s own post natal depression origins, and the wonderful Tracy Greenwood of the NHS Blackpool Teaching hospita’s NHS Foundation Trust gives a wealth of brilliant links and information, all of which can be found here on my Quirky website -  HERE is a link to the CAST BIOGS, allll references we make in the podcast ep, and to the sound effects I used in my original audio fiction PLUS full credits...on my Quirky Voices Website.
