Genevieve Desrochers is an incredible fellow Canadian mom with lived experience who is not afraid to share her experience to help others. She wrote a book (in English and French!) and shared its contents on YouTube. I was lucky enough to be interviewed by Genevieve for her YouTube channel: Postpartum, Let’s Talk!

I loved joining fellow authors at multiple Chapters book signings. Other contributors to the anthology include Michael Landsberg and Deb McGrath.
