SSHM research on emotional experiences of early parenthood published on The Conversation

An article titled ‘I didn’t know who I was anymore’ – myths vs realities of early parenthood based on our research exploring emotional experiences of early parenthood among a diverse group of Australian parents was published on The Conversation on 2 October 2014. It has subsequently been republished by the Washington Post and Women’s Agenda.

The article reports on some findings from our research, and also includes a link to a new website based on the research. This is a unique, innovative on-line repository of stories of becoming a parent from 45 mothers and fathers from a wide range of backgrounds and circumstances.
