    Film Screening: No One Told Me

    If you're expecting, just had a baby, care for women in the childbirth continuum, or are just a birth nerd, I invite you to join us for the Australian premier of the documentary No One Told Me. This is an opportunity to come together to view a raw and honest depiction of life with a brand new baby, and the transition into motherhood.

    Director's note

    I made this film after becoming a mother in 2018 and being totally unprepared for how hard those first weeks and months of motherhood are. Initially I thought it was just me, I was having such a hard time because something was wrong with me. When I realised that many women struggle with the transition into motherhood, the idea for No One Told Me was born; A film that observes one woman from birth, through the first days and weeks postpartum. No interviews, no looking back, just being in the moment with her. Showing future mothers and their support system what the postpartum period can look like. Showing new mothers that they are not the only ones struggling. Allowing mothers of all ages to process their own postpartum experience. Allowing those without children to deepen their understanding.

    This film is a testament to the fact that as humans we have so much more in common than we think and that we are not as alone as we feel. The power of being vulnerable is to show others that it is safe to share and that it is safe to feel it all. My hope is that No One Told Me contributes to new mothers and their villages to feel deeper into what's needed during the postpartum time. Creating new traditions and support systems that allow new mothers to feel safe and loved and held.
