About this item

Hargreave offers this collection of experiences with postnatal depression (PND), introduced by her own reflections but broadening to include the experiences of a range other mothers. The first several chapters narrate a number of stories from first PND experiences as well as the surprising unpredictability of second episodes. The book then discusses social factors that can contribute to maternal depression, including the tendency for others to present the happiest side of their lives, and the interaction of PND with other mental disorders, including preexisting depression, anxiety, and PTSD. The end of the book moves toward how professionals can help and discusses less typical presentations such as depression with onset many months after delivery or postpartum psychosis, finally ending with suggestions for how mothers-to-be and their families can make themselves resilient against the possibility of PND and cope if it does strike.
