The Fourth Trimester is a film that sets out to normalise and educate about the feelings of low mental health that many parents experience when caring for their baby.

In her research, Phoebe found the topic to be taboo; having a baby is often portrayed as the most special time in someone’s life.

The human hand is evident in every part of the film and the amount of care that has been taken helps to communicate the message.
