This book is simply amazing.
I just had my second child, four months ago. Again, I am struggling with postpartum depression, although I didn't recognize it with my first until his pediatrician recognized it when my first was 15 months old! I am here to tell you that sometimes, it does not just go away.
If you are looking at this review, you probably have a sneaking suspicion that you have PPD. And because you want to get better, you will. If you are trying to get better, you are a good mom. You can take some steps to get better, and it might take a little time, but you will, and you will see how glorious life as a mom can truly be.
I am sitting here with this book open in front of me. I wish I had this before. This book is sizable and it might be overwhelming, esp if you are barely functioning beyond the basics right now. That's OK! Just read a little at a time. Small steps forward.
This is the most helpful book I have encountered (and I have checked out a LOT of books on this subject). This is the one I highly recommend. And if your OBGYN isn't helping you, or you can't be honest with them, go to someone else. At minimum, you need a professional checking up with you. You will get better that much faster.
If I hadn't been through this already, I wouldn't have the perspective that you WILL get better and it WILL be a beautiful life for you. Don't be afraid to take the actual steps to get better. Really, this book will help you.
