The Letdown 

0:31 | Trailer
Audrey is determined not to be defined by motherhood. In theory, this seems fairly easy. In practice, her career-focused husband, self-obsessed mother, and fancy-free best friend make it damn-near impossible.

New mother Audrey is having a hard time adjusting to motherhood. Exhausted, struggling to breastfeed, and lacking support from her husband, her selfish and flighty mother, and friends who don't invite her out clubbing, she turns to a new-mothers' group and finds a mixed bag of women and one man who are all in the same boat. They are united by their horror birth stories, sleepless nights, and loss of identity. The Letdown is a humorous yet truthful insight into new parenthood, a must-watch that will make you reminisce and cry at the same time. Written by Jane James

User Reviews

Funny, bittersweet and true
23 April 2018 | by annieroobSee all my reviews

Found this on netflix. Am sorry there are only six episodes. This had me laughing, but also made me think. Such talented writing, so accurate, the acting is excellent too. The Mother, just like mine made me grind my teeth in sympathy. I do hope they make more episodes it is just so good. The Australian production is so far ahead of our sad attempt with the BBC to cover this subject.
