But after she gave birth to her daughter Théa in 2014 in Switzerland, she became sleep-deprived, had trouble breastfeeding, and checked herself into hospital to deal with the depression she began experiencing.


“She went from, ‘Okay, I think I know what I’m doing,’ to, ‘I question what I’m doing,’ to ‘Am I doing things correctly?’ to ‘Am I doing things that might hurt my daughter?’ to almost like ‘What if I unconsciously hurt my daughter?'”
