Did you know up to 70% of new mothers are struggling with some form of anxiety or depression, according to data shared by The Motherhood Center? There’s never been a more important time to show new mothers that they aren’t alone this May for Maternal Mental Health Month. Buffalo native Erin Bagwell, the creator and producer behind Dream, Girl – the documentary showcasing the stories of ambitious female entrepreneurs that premiered in 2016 at the White House, is back with her most intimate work to date. Year One is a 30-minute documentary about identity, postpartum depression, and the first year of motherhood. In this deeply personal film we hear Erin’s inner thoughts, witness her struggles, and celebrate the a-ha moments as she documents her motherhood journey from pregnancy to her daughter’s first birthday. Year One will premiere in Buffalo at The Seneca One Screening Room May 18th alongside a panel discussion after the film lead by Amanda Meyers from Revolution with Erin Bagwell (filmmaker of Year One), Dr. Davina Moss (Founder of Positive Direction and Associates, Inc.), and Ashley Rowe (News Anchor from WKBW). All are welcome for a night of connection, cocktails, and conversation about maternal mental health brought to you by Revolution.
