FIFO Wife: Coping strategies

July 25, 2018

As most parents are aware, the joys of parenthood come hand in hand with sleep deprivation and a lot of hard work. This week we talk to Debbie Russo, a mother to 3 boys and a fly-in-fly-out wife. Debbie shares how she and her husband juggle their parenting roles and how her own battle with depression inspired her to start a support network for other FIFO partners.

Kendi Burness-Cowan speaks with Debbie about her unique lifestyle, the support network that helped her and how honoured she is that she can now assist others in similar situations.
