Ashe Davenport was one of the first amongst her friends to fall pregnant. With few examples to follow, motherhood came as a bit of a shock.
In her book Sad Mum Lady, Ashe documents the things people don’t talk about. Like loving your children but hating being a mother. Like how rage and grief can exist alongside love and joy.
In this interview, Ashe talks about how motherhood saved her and why it can be so challenging for women today.
