Alison Sanders was happily married to her university sweetheart, Paul, and they had everything they could hope for. But they couldn’t conceive naturally so they decided adopt. However, days after they took twin babies home with them, Alison fell pregnant. She and her husband took the devastating decision to halt the adoption process and focus on the long-awaited pregnancy, but the birth of her son only led to more problems. In her book, Alison tells all about her recovery from heartbreak, postnatal depression and OCD to go on to live a fulfilling family life.

About the Author:

Alison Sanders, a school librarian, lives in Stoke with her husband, Paul, and their son Henry. After Henry was born, Alison had postnatal depression, and OCD manifested itself in the form of sleep obsession, which led to a breakdown. From there, Alison had to rebuild her relationships and learn to fall in love with her son. Now returned to full-time employment, she writes about her experiences and is a passionate advocate for mental health awareness.
