Jill Krause from Babies Rabies with the help of Cotton Babies wants to share her message about Postpartum Depression (PPD).
I wanted to create something that humanized the faces of perinatal mood disorders (postpartum depression, anxiety, ocd, etc.). I wanted to give people another side, beyond what we see on TV, on the news.
Filmmaker Jill Krause traveled to three cities to interview seven different survivors of postpartum depression and anxiety. This short video tells their stories:
1 in 7 moms will suffer from a perinatal mood disorder.
Too many women struggle and suffer in silence. There is still shame for not being super woman and suffering from a perinatal mood disorder. We wanted to share this video to let moms know they are not alone. There is hope. Stay strong. If you think you maybe suffering from a perinatal disorder contact your doctor. Not sure? Take our quiz:
