Emily Tredget told co-Lulu author Sarah Onions about her new website www.mummylinks.com in an interview at Radio Jackie.
Emily who attended Surbiton High School in South West London then studied at Oxford. Her father attended the prestigious Tiffin Boys School in Kingston-upon-Thames
She had a high professional achieving job working at Innocent Drinks in supply and demand management.
Faced with a young baby son at home, she suffered from post natal depression which is experienced by 1 in 5 women in Britain.
Now she’s established an online presence though Emily doesn’t believe that social media is always the answer and human contact is equally important.
Human contact is what she’s hoping to achieve at the new support group for young parents at Sutton Baptist Church in Sutton, launching on the 4th of April at 2pm.
The mother of Louise Onions, co-author Doris Onions suffered severe post-natal depression with the birth of her first child Sarah.
Doris was isolated, living in Saltdean, east of Brighton in what was principally a retirement community and without even a phone in 1958, having been brought up and lived previously in North London surrounded by friends and family.
Her husband Ron Onions was working long shifts as a sub-editor on the Evening Argus in Brighton and the couple had no car or TV.
Eventually Doris recovered from the severe depression and 4 years later, Lulu was born on the 25th of March 1962, 55 years ago today.
Meanwhile the story of ‘Don’t Bring Lulu;Her Family’s Tale of Trial and Triumph’ by Ron,Doris and Sarah Onions has been published as an audio book – you can see more details here – http://www.audible.co.uk/pd/Biographies-Memoirs/Dont-Bring-Lulu-Audiobook/B06XKCKRDV/ref=a_search_c4_1_1_srTtl?qid=1490465774&sr=1-1
