Louis Theroux - Mothers on the Edge

Anyone watch his latest documentary?

I found it so sad to watch but he handled the topic so well.

Is there centre's like that in Ireland? One thing that bothered me was the attitude of "oh you are still struggling, lets just up the meds".

The woman they followed that went home to 3 children was so medicated she could barely open her eyes in one part of it.

Just F**K off. All capital letters. The attitude, in case anyone thinks I'm attacking the poster.

I really wanted to see this but missed it- hope I can catch it some time this week.

I found it insane that they allowed the children be with the mother, when they could have been in a totally safe environment at home with the father.

Yea true - but I guess it's to encourage them to bond with the babies and be supervised on how they are coping with them?

My wife is pregnant, at one of the appointments there was a part that I wasn't in with her for. She was asked was she safe in her home, apparently standard a question. Fair enough I'm not the patient in their care however my unborn son is. Surely they should have asked me how she was coping, is she drinking or smoking.

Have watched the first 20 mins or so of it and it's a difficult watch. Theroux really is exceptional when it comes to making these documentaries.

While post partum and post natal depression can and does affect men the focus of the Theroux documentary is on the effect on Mother's.

Having the baby with them is part of the recovery process. It has clinical value. It's not some anti fathers conspiracy.

Why don't you start another thread to argue about strawman things that were never said here or have nothing to do with the topic.

Don’t be silly, of course they can, but the documentary focused on postpartum depression which is not for men

The OPs Mother's on the Edge?

She must have found him more attractive than Bono I guess.
