When Brooke Shields welcomed her newborn daughter, Rowan Francis Henchy, into the world, something unexpected followed - a crippling depression. Now, for the first time, Brooke talks about the trials, tribulations, and finally the triumphs that occurred before, during, and after the birth of her daughter.
In what will strike a chord with millions of women, Brooke Shields openly shares the story of how she battled a condition that is widely misunderstood, despite the fact that it affects one in ten new mothers. She discusses the illness in the context of her own life, including her struggle to get pregnant; the high expectations she had for herself and that society as well as others placed on her as a new mom; and the roles her husband, friends, and family played as she struggled to attain her maternal footing in the midst of severe postpartum depression. And, ultimately, Brooke tells how she found a way out through talk therapy, medication, and time.
Brooke has grown up in the public eye, but this is the story of what happened to the private woman, the one the world hasn't seen before. With intelligence, humor, and startling honesty, Brooke speaks directly to the listener, making us feel close to her experience, her pain, and her ultimate triumph.
A Princeton graduate with a degree in French Literature, Brooke Shields is also an actress who has starred in many feature films. She has earned five People's Choice Awards for her work, including one for her starring role in Suddenly Susan, which also earned her a Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Comedy. She has received critical acclaim on Broadway for her leading roles in Cabaret and Wonderful Town. Brooke continues to lend aid to issues involving children's welfare and education.
