“When I started having kids, I knew people in my social circle that had night nannies, but there was a part of me that judged it a little bit. I had a normal upbringing in the Midwest, where it’s just understood that you’re going to wake up with your own baby. Then, when I had my third child—at that point, I have two little kids, and I am working. I broke down, and I thought, ‘You know what? I’m going to give this a try.’ It wound up being the most amazing experience ever. I thought, ‘God, every woman should have this kind of support.’ It definitely is a really inaccessibly bourgeois thing, but at the same time, it makes you realize, new moms need more support. We don’t really live in a tribal society anymore where you have a lot of other women around helping you. Moms are very isolated these days, so it’s like, I don’t think there’s anything wrong with needing that. It’s just, unfortunately, not available to most women. …[In Tully] it was really important for me to show what a difference class makes, when it comes to the experience you can have as a parent.”

-Diablo Cody, mother of three, and director of the new film Tully, to Film School Rejects, 2018.
