After an anxious pregnancy, Mariko developed depression after her daughter's birth. A recent immigrant from Japan, language difficulties and cultural differences contributed to her feelings of isolation. Her Canadian husband, Kasimir, supported her, but wasn't really sure how to help. However, he did what was most important for Mariko: he listened. After a long time, Mariko reached out for help and began to heal. As a result of their journey through PPD/A, they learned a great deal about themselves, each other, and their relationship. They now feel stronger and wiser.
