Publication Date: 2005-05-03
When Brooke Shields welcomed her newborn daughter, Rowan Francis, into the world, a crippling depression followed. In Down Came The Rain, Brooke writes about the tribulations, depression, and, ultimately, the triumphs that happened before and after the birth. With a knowledgeable voice and a self-deprecating sense of humor, Brooke discusses her battle with postpartum depression, a disorder that has been widely misunderstood and is prevalent in many new mothers. Having successfully recovered through talk therapy, medication, and time, Brooke offers her story of being in the public eye, her marriage and pregnancy, and her new role as a mother.
