Mommy's Got a Tramp Stamp: The truth about surviving motherhood and finding yourself. (Paperback)
Motherhood is a freaking mess y'all. Actually, I'm a freaking mess, but aren't we all in one way or another?I wanted to write this book to share my disaster after recovering from all the wonders motherhood has to offer. In particular, my experience with "severe postpartum anxiety." Let's get real, though. You don't recover from postpartum anxiety. It is something you survive. It is one of the many battles I faced during early motherhood. Bringing a life into this world brings you to the brink of hell, but if you let it, it also brings you this particular kind of magic that you never imagined existed in your pre-baby world. Mama, it makes you a freaking SUPERHERO
My name is Cassie Pigg. I am no one special. I'm not famous. Insta-what? I am ambitious. I cuss like a sailor. If you have issues with profanity, don't buy this book. I've always been a party girl. I love to laugh, and I love with my whole entire heart. I am a mother. And I have a tramp stamp. This is my story.
1 in 9 mothers in the US suffer from postpartum depression, and they need all the support available. I am sharing my story in an effort to help new mothers. Motherhood can be a difficult journey, and my goal is to make sure moms are equipped with the necessary resources for survival. Suicide is the 2nd highest cause of mortality postpartum, and this is unacceptable. The stigma surrounding perinatal mental health needs to end. Like, right now.
