Guest blog by Karen McMillian (@mother_truths). I understood that sleep deprivation would be part and parcel of new motherhood. But I hadn’t accounted for it featuring quite so heavily and for quite so long. I didn’t anticipate that sleep (or the lack of) would come to define my experience of motherhood.
