But soon after birth, the days are often fraught with sleep deprivation and conflicting messages from peers, family members, and health care professionals.

ACES show

This show was difficult for me to listen to and I worry about parents who may not have the resources I have in my life. Maybe a trigger warning but at the very least she should listen to herself because Marie sounds really flippant when discussing some very difficult, painful experiences.
