There’s nothing funny about Post Natal Depression and for comedian Terri Psiakis this reality became an internal nightmare – on the outside everything was peachy, but as you’ll learn in this podcast today, inside her world was quickly crashing down. Like many new mothers may experience, Post Natal Depression (PND) pulls women apart and for Terri, she explains how her post natal depression was “ball-tearing” (we giggle), certainly not the introduction to motherhood she had planned or hoped for; doubled with a diagnosis of Post Natal Traumatic Stress (PNTS). Ouch.
But we do not need to experience such pain alone, which is why we’ve opened the mic to Terri today. Not only is Terri a comedian, she is a writer, a performer, a broadcaster a mum and her newest ‘baby,’ Hello Baby where she provides her expertise as infant massage instructor and she’s got some amazing insights as to the why and how of PND & PNTS…. and how massage helped her recover.
