Each year over 400,000 new mothers experience a range of negative emotional reactions-categorized as postpartum depression (PPD). Yet most obstetricians misunderstand and mistreat PPD, prescribing a single-therapy, simplistic approach that frequently falls short of curing the patient.Based on the authors' research and unique, highly successful treatment, Conquering Postpartum Depression outlines a groundbreaking multidisciplinary action plan for beating PPD, including a combination of talk therapy, new-parent counseling, and in many cases the safe use of antidepressant medications even while pregnant or breastfeeding. With the newest information on how genetic factors and pre-existing conditions can contribute to PPD, Conquering Postpartum Depression is the book that new mothers and even doctors reach to for authoritative and reassuring counsel.

From Publishers Weekly:

Written by a team of experts from diverse medical and mental health backgrounds, this warm volume explains the risks, diagnostic assessment tools and treatment methods for postpartum depression. The condition is fairly common-the "baby blues affects four out of five mothers, and other postpartum mood or anxiety disorders affect an additional 10-17 percent of mothers." And because postpartum depression often isn't widely discussed, the stories of real women who have suffered and recovered from it could be comforting to women currently experiencing it. Bulleted lists of everything from signs and symptoms to risk factors make this volume easy to read and digest. Quotes from women about how they didn't think it was acceptable to feel this way-"I remember thinking, this isn't right... I didn't want it and I can't even imagine that I might have it"-should also help reassure readers that they aren't alone.
