Having a baby is supposed to be the happiest time of your life. But what if it’s not? Each year, 1.3 million women in the U. S. struggle to find support and treatment for postpartum depression and other perinatal mood disorders. This film gives a face and a voice to the countless women who suffer in silence. It also uncovers disconnects within the medical community to effectively screen, refer, and treat these women.
