A groundbreaking, multidisciplinary approach to understanding, treating, and overcoming postpartum depression. 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, 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, is the book that new mothers and even doctors reach to for authoritative and reassuring counsel.
