When The Bough Breaks is a feature length documentary about postpartum depression and perinatal mood disorders.
When actress Tanya Newbould experienced PPD with her daughter, she did not understand what was happening to her or even how to get help.
Tanya teamed up with Director Jamielyn Lippman to begin the journey to better understand this illness that affects one in five new mothers. One of the woman they interviewed was Lindsay Gerszt. Lindsay agreed to let the cameras document her treatments and condition in order to give the audience an in depth look at her path to recovery.
Babies are dying, women aren't speaking out and the signs are being missed. Together these three women take us on a journey to find answers and break the silence.
This film features stories from singer Carnie Wilson, celebrity chef Aarti Sequeria and Peggy Tanous from The Real Housewives of Orange County. It is Narrated and Executive Produced by Brooke Shields.
