New mother Jessica Porten took all the correct steps in scheduling an appointment with her OBGYN to discuss treatment options for the postpartum depression symptoms she was experiencing. However, instead of being treated by a doctor, the nurse called the police on the struggling new mother.

Porten took to Facebook to tell her heartbreaking story:

I had an OB appointment yesterday, my first since giving birth 4 months ago (because they kept [canceling] my appointments), which is inhumane in my eyes. I went to the appointment alone with Kira. It was at 2:10, and I was not called back to a room until 3:15. A nurse practitioner comes in (one I don’t particularly care for) and I tell her everything my husband told them when he scheduled me the appointment a week ago. That I have postpartum depression that is manifesting in fits of anger, and I want to discuss my medication options. I tell them I have a very strong support system at home, so although I would never hurt myself or my baby, I’m having violent thoughts and I need medication and therapy to get through this. She rushed through my pelvic exam, barely spoke about medication, said she needed to talk to the doctor about my PPD, and left the room.

They called the fucking cops on me.
