Mariquita and Steph sit down to discuss Szilvia Molnar’s debut novel, The Nursery, which examines one woman’s struggles with overwhelming postpartum fear and disconnection. They reflect on how the book mirrored their own experiences and the disservice we do by not discussing the daunting reality of new parenthood.
