Kathryn also interviews Laura Jean Baker, award-winning author of the book “The Motherhood Affidavits: A Memoir”. With the birth of her first child, Baker discovers oxytocin to be the first effective antidote to her lifelong depression. Over the next 8 years, addicted to the highs of pregnancy and new motherhood, her ‘oxy’ cravings and family grow — to the dismay of her public defender husband. Baker is featured in Salon, The Washington Post and the NYTimes. VoiceAmerica | Talk Radio | Online Talk Radio studio@voiceamerica.com false DD/MM/YYYY Add to Calendar
