Louis Theroux: Mothers On The Edge

Available on BBC Select, Prime Video
What happens when a new mother experiences psychiatric problems after giving birth? Postpartum psychosis occurs in around one in 1,000 women with no prior mental-health issues. In one of his most harrowing films yet, the British filmmaker spends time in two specialist psychiatric units in the UK to meet women with anxiety, depression and other conditions triggered by the strains of motherhood.
