Samantha Freestone is a normal, everyday mother-of-two. She lives in Sydney and works part-time. Oh, and she has a constant battle with anxiety.

Samantha Freestone hosts the Some Answers podcast

Anxiety is in epidemic proportions around the world. A silent predator, it eats way at normal, everyday people. It is no respecter of age, race, faith-background or gender.

In this interview, Sam tells her story, like it is, with no apologies. And she explains what she has learnt. To live, love and play, with that anxiety shadow constantly lurking.

How does she do it?

Have a listen to find out what happened, and how she keeps going.

GUEST: Samantha Freestone
HOST: Jenny Baxter

Show Notes

  • Sam’s story, about feeling completely overwhelmed with motherhood, is familiar. It mirrors the experience of so many women. But for whatever reason, we don’t talk about it!
  • There can be a grieving process as mothers adjust to “losing self”.
  • Another of the guests on Treasuring Mothers, Ruth Amos, had a similar story to Sam. Like Sam, when she became a mother her expectations were out of sync with reality.

    First broadcast on Hobart’s ultra106five. This interview was brought to you with the assistance of the Community Broadcasting Foundation.
