    What if your experience of motherhood was nothing like what you hoped for - but everything you always feared?


    'The women in this family, we're different . . .'

    The arrival of baby Violet was meant to be the happiest day of my life.
    A fresh start.

    But as soon as I held her in my arms, I knew something wasn't right.

    I have always known that the women in my family weren't meant to be mothers.

    My husband Fox says I'm imagining it, but she's different with me. Something feels very wrong.

    Is it her? Or is it me?

    Is she the monster? Or am I?


    The Push is an addictive, gripping and compulsive read asking what happens when women are not believed - and challenging everything we think we know about motherhood.
