War weary

Jane Hansen, former TV journalist, foreign correspondent and war reporter, talks about her new book Three Seasons and how it’s not the excitement of “the job” that has made her “war weary” these past few years,

Jane talks about her decision to delay starting a family with Andrew because the excitement of a career she worked so hard for was too delicious a temptation… When she found herself pregnant while covering the allied invasion of Afghanistan, Jane knew her life was about to change, but could never have guessed how. Ten weeks later she miscarried. Seven months down the track and Jane again found herself pregnant. It was just 19 weeks later that Andrew and Jane were organising a funeral for Thomas who was stillborn. When she was 22 weeks pregnant with Jackson the following year, Jane was diagnosed as having an “incompetent cervix” and began a new roller coaster of emotion. link
