Midwife Leah Hazard talks to author and mum Lucy Brett about her book - PMSL - and her campaign to smash the taboos around women's health and birth.

Lucy started writing about women’s health, bodies and taboo after the birth of her second baby. Like many women born in an analogue age her sex and body education was a combined effort – she learned about her nether regions from magazines, other peoples’ big sisters and Tampax leaflets. This meant she wasn’t brilliantly prepared for the realities of childbirth.

Passionate about feminism, healthcare, and smashing the stigma around women’s bodies she has spoken about her condition, and also the wider impact of taboo in women’s healthcare. Part memoir, part best friend, part stigma smashing call to action PMSL is her first book.
