Pregnancy, breastfeeding and ADHD Meds.

Rose Callaghan, ADHD Ambassador and Australian Comedian - the first person I have interviewed who was diagnosed with ADHD BEFORE getting pregnant. Check out her complex ride as I interview her on:

- Multiple psychiatrist visits to get a muddy answer on meds and pregnancy.

- Multiple psychiatrist visits to get a even muddier answer on meds and breastfeeding. (But don't worry there's a study on rats and meth)

- How C-sections are the only operation when you are then handed a baby and told to prioritise that over your own recovery.

- We get feminist on how unfair the gender roles are

- We get agro about misdiagnosis of teenage girls, wrong medication, wrong therapy.

- Rose has been considering doing a podcast for a long time but realises the commitment. Jane realises she probably should have thought about thecommitment before she started hers LOL.

*We both swear and also talk openly about medicating children in our uneducated opinion - any listeners should get medical advice*
