November 16, 2018

In the weeks after giving birth at Stanford Hospital, Laura Keller filled out periodic developmental forms about her newborn son at the pediatrician's office. Does your child lift the head? Does your child smile? Does your baby drink breast milk or formula?

At the end of each form was another question: Has mom been feeling sad, anxious, hopeless or depressed often?

She always answered "Yes."
