In an interview with Glamour UK in July 2019, Yvonne spoke about returning to work on The Handsmaid’s Tale shortly after welcoming her first child.

‘It was definitely one of the hardest and most challenging moments ever in my entire career. Coming back to work with a newborn and all the sleep deprivation that comes with that, plus I was breastfeeding,’ she recounted.

Describing it as ‘crazy’, she added: ‘I was running in between set and my trailer, breastfeeding on demand and doing scene work.’
