"How I Came To This Story"

Six hours after giving birth to Esmé, reporter Hillary Savoie discharged herself from the hospital to be by her daughter's side in a NICU 10 miles away. The PTSD she experiences might date to Esmé's birth. Or it might date to the day, months later, when she carried her daughter's limp body into the emergency room. Or it might stem from any number of emergencies in the years since.

Hillary's experience with PTSD is personal, and led her to reach out to other parents about their experiences. The result is this project.
