Pardon My Postpartum
Pardon My Postpartum takes an unprecedented journey into the postnatal veil of parenthood, transcending misconceptions, stereotypes and barriers through a chorus of emphatic appeals from the heart. A lively, spirited and heartfelt discovery of families surviving postpartum depression and the cultural variables that play a role in one of the most widely misunderstood conditions in the world.
Considered the last taboo of modern health, postpartum depression / postnatal mood disorders affect women, men and families across all economic and cultural backgrounds and the symptoms can be some of the most difficult to recognize. It is a condition that effects more then 1 in 10 mothers who have no prior history of mental or mood disorder issues and its victims are all too often left isolated, misunderstood and untreated.
Pardon My Postpartum taps into the progressive voice of women and men from around the world as they speak out with compassion, rage and at times even levity, expressing the need for greater understanding, the sharing of traditional practices, and the hidden wealth of contemporary support structures to aid families, dispel fears and create dialogue.
