TV personality Anna Williamson celebrated the launch of her new book ‘Breaking Mum and Dad: The Insider Guide to Parenting Anxiety’ at the Devonshire Club, London earlier this week. Anna Williamson was joined by her husband Alex Di Pasquale, a new parent Luisa Zissman, Jeff Brazier with his new partner Kate Dwyer as well as Doctor Hilary Jones with spouse Dee Jones among others.
Anna was in good spirits as she signed copies of her book at the new private membership club. She wore a light-blue dress with ruffled long sleeves and paired it with iridescent blue heels. Luisa Zissman, also a young parent, was in great shape and wore a black jumpsuit with very daring cleavage. She paired it with chunky high-heeled shoes decorated with crystals and a small over the shoulder bag.
“Mental health for new mums and dads is a thing – a big thing – and it’s time we all stopped suffering in silence,” told Williamson to Ikon London Magazine. Following the birth of her first baby, Anna Williamson was diagnosed with post-natal anxiety and birth trauma. She went on a mission to uncover the real thoughts, feelings, and behaviours that many of us experience in those first few weeks and months after becoming a parent.
Packed with helpful advice, shared stories and practical guidance, alongside thoughts from a clinical psychologist, Dr Reetta Newell, this is a must-read therapist in your pocket. “Read it at 2 am when you’re struggling with never-ending night feeds, at 6 am when you’ve already watched the same cartoon for the twentieth time, or at 10 pm when you just long for sleep or a few minutes or seconds to yourself,” encourages Anna.
