At the time, her husband Philip Sternberg (who stars in the series alongside Catherine as her on-screen husband) urged her to write down her experiences - she told Glamour she would “imagine sinister things” like being hit by a bus just so she would have to go to hospital and be taken care of. It helped. “By fleshing out my sadness, exposing the strange and funny angles to it, I began to recognize the ‘me’ that I was prior to having my son,” she shared with Glamour.
And that’s where the script for Workin' Moms came from.
The comedy series follows four women in a mum’s group who are just returning to work from maternity leave. Dealing with postpartum depression and everyday struggles like trying to shower with a baby in the bathroom, mums all over the world are praising it for being so relatable.
The show has just finished filming its fourth season, which will air in 2020.
