Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Postpartum depression (PPD) is a far more common, misunderstood, and life-debilitating illness than most people realize. At a time when most moms expect to feel happy and content, those suffering from PPD experience the crushing weight of despair and anxiety.

Living Beyond Postpartum Depression offers hope to not only those moms but also their husbands, family members, and friends. Because women battling PPD, and those walking with them through this valley, often don’t know what to do, this book explains what they’re facing physically, emotionally, and spiritually and how these three aspects are inseparably intertwined.

Best-selling author Jerusha Clark shares her own PPD story while offering scripturally based truths that will help restore, heal, guide, and support readers. With practical advice, treatment options, and steps to moving forward, Living Beyond Postpartum Depression is the compassionate, biblical encouragement those affected by PPD need.

Format: Paperback
I have lived though several season of depression, sometimes related to chronic illness, other times to infertility or miscarriage, and most recently in the wake of pregnancy and for two years postpartum. Jerusha Clark's book helped me understand the journey in a way no doctor had ever clearly explained to me. Thankfully neither of my postpartum depression (PPD) experiences were as severe as what Jerusha endured (she was hospitalized twice) and I remained a fairly functional mom in a mild-moderate range of illness, but a tool like Living Beyond Postpartum Depression would have been a wonderful resource for me and my family through our storms!

Living Beyond is a fantastic read for anyone considering trying to conceive. It's the kind of book I wish pastors and counselors would have engaged couples read even as they prepare for marriage. Hopefully you will never need the information there, but it is a good tool to have available and information to be aware of even prior to conception - I truly wish I had known about it before we miscarried Noel (we faced 10 losses, but only this 1 plunged me into PPD) or before our living daughter's pregnancy/birth that also took me through PPD (though I didn't have PPD with either or our living sons). A book like this would have armed me with so much helpful information and the understanding that I needed to seek help to avoid putting myself and my family through such heartache.

One thing I greatly appreciate about Jerusha's book was that even though she herself has not faced infertility or pregnancy loss, she does acknowledge both issues, providing facts that are often overlooked in many PPD resources. While she does not address these issues in depth, she shares that, "PPD can afflict women after a miscarriage, stillbirth, or abortion.

I am very happy to share this book by Jerusha Clark called "Living Beyond Postpartum Depression". I had major PPD with my first child and I would have loved to have this book back then. It's written by a women who has "been there, done that" when it comes to PPD. Jerusha is very open and honest with her struggles, the first chapter had me crying and wanting to read more.

This book made me feel normal with my feels and also gave me much encouragement to get through it. With a focus on Spirituality and the Bible it shows us how to lean on others and reach out when in need. I would recommend this book to any women who is thinking about being pregnant, is pregnant or already has children. I think it helps through all walks of life and types of depression. I would also recommend having your loved ones read this book to know how to help you through your depression.

A warning though, Jerusha is VERY OPEN with all her struggles and is tough to the heart to read. If you are in a fragile state I would recommend not reading this until you know you can handle the details and open struggles of someone else.

When I was suffering with PPD ten years ago, I went to a Christian bookstore to find something--anything--that would speak to me in my fog. The only book I found about being a first-time mother was written----no joke----by a MAN. I despaired and found other avenues to help me recover.

I was so glad Ms. Clark wrote this book, after reading another of her books, "every thought captive. She is so open and honest about the struggles she experienced, and offers hope and comfort to all experiencing PPD. There is also a very helpful chapter written by her husband, dealing with inlaws, the marriage relationship, and other things that give insights on how to support and encourage women who have PPD.

Please get this book, buy extra copies for all the new moms you know, and support them as they recover with their babies!

I enjoyed the Christian/Scripture aspect of this book on post=partum depression. I also enjoyed learning more about the brain and what happens during depression and the different types of depression. There are also chapters geared towards spouses, family and friends and how they can help. I wish there had been more examples of people suffering to relate to.
