Format: Paperback
I recommend this book to all husbands, partners and family members of women suffering from postpartum depression. I am a clinician specializing in treatment of prenatal and postpartum mood disorders. This book is succinct and to the point. It is written in bullet points and brief paragraphs that give specific and clear information. Chapters include topics such as Understanding PPD, Misconceptions about depression, What she might be feeling and what you can do about it, What NOT to say, and more. Important sections cover topics such as coping, what you (the husband) might be feeling, medications, and recovery. It's amazing Kleiman could get so much information into this book. So often the husbands and families are confused about how to understand this problem and be helpful. Anyone who reads this book will feel supported.

24 of 29 people found the following review helpful By Mark Clark on October 7, 2004
Format: Paperback
This book is written entirely in bullet points and one-page "chapters" consisting of more white space than text. If it were subtitled "Positive Affirmations," rather than "Practical Solutions," I would not object. But I would also not have been misled into buying it.

The author has an informative website that I would endorse, and the content of the book is appropriate in that format. It would make a good give-away pamphlet to families in treatment. As someone who truly is looking for practical solutions, however, I was disappointed that Postpartum Husband does not delve much deeper than, "Be patient and supportive."

And despite the title, the book gives surprisingly minimal attention to what a postpartum husband might do to take care of his own well-being while patiently supporting his emotionally struggling wife and fulfilling all of his other family and work obligations.

The book promises more than it delivers, which is unfortunate because there is a real need for advice directed to the practical-minded husband.

I got this book in hopes of learning and understanding PPD. Instead I got a book written in bullet points with no real meaningful content. I certainly didn't gain and knowledge or insight that I was looking for.

Ordered several books on post partum depression. This book is absolutely a must have for anyone close to and concerned about someone with post partum depression. Easy to read, and understand. Adresses both what the wife and also the husband are feeling during this misunderstood illness. My daughter is in recovery from PPD now, and my husband insists that we order more copies to have on hand for other people we may come in contact with...

Format: Paperback
We looked so forward to the birth of our first child that I never imagined that his birth could turn our world upside down and leave my wife suffering from PPD. Try as I might,I just didn't know where to turn to find some answers and help. A friend recommended that I read this book. I was not holding out much hope, since no one else seemed to be of much help in this area. But it was filled with wonderful insight and information and ways to help my wife get thru this.

Today, my wife is feeling better and we are enjoying our child and being parents. Thank you Karen, for writing this wonderful book. I highly recommend that this book, along with "this isn't what I expected" be on all new parents reading list.

I suffered severely from PPD for over a year after the birth of my daughter in June 2003. This book helped my husband help me. It also was a great comfort to me. If you are suffering from PPD, and you are reading this, know you WILL get better...even though it doesn't seem like it. Buy this book and insist that anyone close to you read it...your husband, your Mom your Dr. It truly will help. You are NOT alone.

I also suggest Beyond The Blues. I not only read this wonderful book by Shoshanna Bennett and Pec Indman, but was lucky enough to get therapy from Shoshana. She is a wonderful person and has a deep understaning of PPD and how it effects a family.

Every PPD husband must use this valuable resource. if you know if any woman walking through PPD, PLEASE give her spouse a copy of this,resource so he may understand how traumatic PPD may be on his wife and how he can assist her and ensure only supportive family members and friends help out with caring for her. I wish my husband would have had this resource. what a huge difference it may have made. I am using my PPD Journey to help with other mothers walking through this extremely challenging journey by being a PP Doula in hopes of saving other marriages.
