Ruth Briddon Publishes Diaries Supporting Women Who Have Suffered From Postnatal Depression

Devon author Ruth Briddon, based in Torquay, has published a fiction diary as a book to support women who have suffered from PND (Postnatal Depression).

‘Being Sarah Chilton’ is a funny, easy read which will have you smiling on each page but what Ruth does amazingly well in this book is bring out the raw emotions that women suffering from PND go through. Ruth shares her own feelings and thoughts through the process of giving birth to her own child.

Ruth quotes

Having had the privilege of talking to expectant parents about preparing mentally for birth at local Children’s Centres, I strongly feel that Postnatal Depression is still not a recognised illness. I want parents to feel that they can open up more about their feelings when starting their new career as a parent instead of feeling they are alone. Reading my book will definitely encourage others to open up because Sarah doesn’t hold back with how she feels!
