Graceful. Blessed. Strong. Anxious. Depressed. Stigmatized. Stereotyped. What happens when motherhood isn't what you expected-and when you reach out for support, you are met with judgment and prejudice? Sandra Igwe shares her journey as a young Black mother, coping with sleepless nights, anxiety, and loneliness after the birth of her first daughter. Burdened by cultural expectations of the "good mother" and the "strong Black woman" trope, her mental health struggles became an uphill battle. Black women are at higher risk of developing postnatal depression but are the least likely to be identified as depressed. Sharing the voices of other mothers, Sandra examines how culture, racism, stigma, and a lack of trust in services prevent women getting the help they need. Breaking open the conversation on motherhood, race, and mental health, she demands that Black women are listened to, believed, and understood. "Sandra has captured not only her own experiences but those of many other Black mothers. My Black Motherhood made me laugh, it made me cry, but above all made me think and question." "Like listening to a passionate, relatable, sister-friend who can help you fight your corner. Thank you, Sandra, for sharing these deeply affecting stories and for stirring up 'good trouble' on behalf of Black mothers everywhere." "Honest and raw, it really gave me a true insight into the challenges for Black mothers in the UK. A must read for anyone working in perinatal services." "A wonderfully candid insight. It's one that all health professionals need have on their bookshelves." "Brilliantly highlights the challenges Black mothers face and offers tangible solutions."
