Includes bibliographical references and index. --- Review, November 2004: Becoming a mother - either for the first or fifth time - is a life-altering event. And contrary to popular belief, motherhood isn't instinctive and it certainly isn't easy. Feeling sad and anxious and depressed after childbirth makes it even harder, especially when people tell you to "cheer up," or "you just need some more sleep." Our healthcare providers rarely screen for postpartum depression, yet it is a real condition that can have many negative effects on our health, and our babies' health. Thankfully, the authors of this work are around to help! This small book provides a large amount of information about risk factors, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mood disorders in pregnancy and postpartum. It's written not just for sufferers of postpartum disorders, but also their families and healthcare professionals. I wish I had this book after my daughter was born - I would have learned that I wasn't alone and that I could have gotten the help I needed. This book should be required reading for anyone working or caring for pregnant women.
