[Warning: Potentially Triggering Content] Steven D’Achille faced one of the most heartbreaking losses of his life in 2013, but he has used that pain to inspire him to make sure other new parents don’t suffer as he and his wife did.

Speaking to People on Thursday, Steven recalled the moment he heard his infant child, Adriana (inset), crying and knew that something terrible must have happened to his wife, Alexis, who had been suffering for weeks with severe postpartum depression and psychosis — which a handful of doctors hadn’t taken seriously.

Minutes later, he discovered Alexis had attempted suicide. She was taken to a hospital and tragically passed away in the ICU on October 10, just two days later.
