#WomensMonth – caring for mothers is caring for the future!

We kick off South African Women’s Month with one of our most powerful stories.

Based on Xolelwa’s story, this documentary takes you into the world of mothers with depression.

Award-winning Director Simon Wood, spent time with Xolelwa in Khayelitsha, Cape Town, where rates of postnatal depression are three times higher than in developed countries.
