Something To Live For : My Post-Natal Depression and How the NHS Saved Us Hardback



***"Her memoir is brave, honest and shows how friends, family and the NHS got her back from the brink." - The Sun"Something To Live For vividly, brilliantly depicts a descent into mental illness, and what it feels like.

It's funny, brutally honest - but uplifting too, because it shows how, with the right treatment, she recovered." - The Telegraph"A very candid memoir... you are drawn into her story." - JUNOLaura Canty is a new mum. She has her beautiful baby boy, Arthur, and a wonderful husband. She has new mum friends on the local WhatsApp group, and everyone in her life is supportive and happy for her.

But Laura doesn't see it this way. In the weeks since her baby was born, like 1 in 5 women, Laura has developed Post Natal Depression.

In fact, she has decided that the only way out of her current situation is for her to kill herself, or her baby... Laura Canty has written a moving and refreshingly honest memoir, full of truth and hope, to finally lift the lid on PND, revealing not only the little discussed realities of the illness - but also how an incredible NHS Mother and Baby Unit literally saved her and Arthur's lives.
