Parenthood brings sleepless nights, tears and tantrums, nappy changes from hell, and the firm belief that you’re Cameron Diaz … wait, what?!

New mum, Jen Wight, definitely wasn’t expecting that. But after her son was born, her worldview shifted in strange and unexpected ways. Within weeks, Jen found herself living a very different life – working out the deeper connections underpinning existence, and discussing strategy with Barack Obama. The problem is, no one else could see what she saw. Not even her next-door neighbour, Renée Zellweger!

Rattled tells the extraordinary story of how Jen overcame her manic episodes – caused by postpartum psychosis - and beat her postpartum depression to become the loving, caring, wonderful mother she is today.
