Mothers on the Edge

Mothers on the Edge is a powerful and moving documentary in which reporter Caroline Hawley examines the issues facing mothers who suffer very severe psychiatric problems after the birth of their babies.

This condition, postpartum psychosis, is much more serious than the more common post natal depression or "baby blues", as it is sometimes known.

It can cause women to want to harm themselves and their babies.
