A Giraffe Called Neo is about Allison's personal struggle following the spontaneous birth of her son at just 28 weeks gestation and her battle with postnatal depression. She believes her depression was a direct result of the ensuing emotional trauma that came with having a prematurely born baby. Spending the first 91 days of her son's life in a neonatal unit was the opposite of what she had been anticipating. A Giraffe Called Neo documents this time in searingly honest detail. Allison hopes the book will provide a voice for all women and mothers, and help eradicate the social stigma that surrounds postnatal depression. She hopes to offer inspiration to those suffering from it - so that they might have the courage to accept, embrace and conquer their own depression without fear of reprisal.
Allison Schleef was born, raised and lives in Mount Gambier (home of the world famous Blue Lake) in South Australia, Australia. After twenty-three years of working in the hospitality industry as a chef, Allison is enjoying her new role of stay at home mum; which also now gives her time to indulge in her small hobby business 'Little Treasures By Allison'. Sharing a mutual passion for Jack Russell Terriers with her husband, they are active within the JRTCA and Allison is a state representative for, and a long serving member of, the JRTCA's national committee.
