"When The Bough Breaks" is a feature-length documentary about postpartum depression (PPD) and postpartum psychosis. Narrated and produced by Brooke Shields, this shocking film uncovers this very public health issue which affects one in five new mothers after childbirth. Here are five reasons why you should watch and share this film:

  • It will educate you about the different forms of perinatal mood disorders – ranging from the baby blues to postpartum psychosis.
  • It helps break the stigma associated with maternal mental health. (We are not crazy!)
  • It will help our moms know they are not alone!
  • It will open up a much needed conversation with your partner, family and friends.
  • It will inform you on how to support mothers, fathers and children who have been affected by this very common illness.
