When Brooke Shields welcomed her newborn daughter, Rowan Francis, into the world, a crippling depression followed. In Down Came the Rain, Brooke writes about the depression, and ultimately the triumphs that happened before and after the birth. It specifically details that part of her life, with supporting information from the rest of her life, such as her relationship with her mother, reference to her previous marriage to Andre Agassi, meeting and marrying her husband, Chris Henchy, a screenwriter.& It will include chapters on the assistance she needed getting pregnant (one miscarriage, seven in vitro fertilizations), a chapter on a mostly uneventful pregnancy, but that her father died the day before she gave birth, and then greater detail on the depression and events post pregnancy until Rowan's first birthday. With a knowledgeable voice and a self-deprecating sense of humor, Brooke discusses a disorder that has been widely misunderstood and is prevalent in many new mothers. It will not be specifically prescriptive, but it will include information about PPD she has found out since experiencing her own, as well as a resource section of books and websites to consult. It will be vetted by an ob/gyn and a psychiatrist.Shields, Brooke is the author of 'Down Came the Rain ', published 2006 under ISBN 9781401308469 and ISBN 1401308465.
