The perfect team — a storyteller, a hero, a leader
Maureen Fura, Writer/Director
When Maureen discovered she was pregnant she knew something was wrong. At her first OB appointment she told the doctor she didn’t feel like herself, that she was sad. Her OB told her she should be happy she’s having a baby. It took Maureen six months and countless visits to 29 different medical professionals to get the help she needed. Outraged and confused, Maureen has wanted to tell this story for more than four years. Maureen finally found the missing piece, Jennifer.
