Editorial Reviews

Review

An indispensable guide to understanding and treating prenatal and postpartum depression. This book is a gift not only to healthcare providers but also to family and friends of mothers suffering from these devastating perinatal mood disorders. --Cheryl Tatano Beck, DNSc, CNM, FAAN Professor, University of Connecticut, School of Nursing Co-author of Postpartum Depression Screening Scale --Cheryl Tatano Beck, DNSc, CNM, FAAN Professor, University of Connecticut, School of Nursing Co-author of Postp

I love this book! It is easy to read and use as an informative reference for all aspects of perinatal mood and anxiety disorders. I recommend this book to all the OB care provider offices in my hosptial system. It's an excellent book for my clients and required reading for providers I train. Thanks to Pec and Shoshana for the recent updates which make this great book even better." --Birdie Gunyon Meyer, RN, MA Immediate Past President, Postpartum Support International PSI Coordinator and Trainer Perinatal Mood Disorders Program, Clarian Health Indianapolis, IN

'Unfortunately, even in 2010 there remains a stigma surrounding mental health issues such as depression, including during the perinatal period. Despite the fact that approximately 10 to 15% of women experience depression during pregnancy and in the postpartum, translating into thousands of women who are suffering, often in silence. This book will be of great help for both women and their health care practitioners, providing information on all aspects of depression in pregnancy and in the postpartum, including safety/risk of medication therapy." --Adrienne Einarson RN, Assistant Director, The Motherisk Program, The Hospital for Sick Children Toronto,Canada

There are many important messages in this book but here were a few that really made an impact on me. Some of them include: · One in five women will be affected by postpartum depression or anxiety but it is a condition that will go away with help. · Women need to speak up and be persistent in getting proper care. · Not all counselors/therapists have experience or knowledge about perinatal mood and anxiety disorders. The book also offers screening questions to find the right practitioner. Beyond the Blues is a vital resource for the whole support team, family, educators, doulas, practitioners, therapists and of course for any woman is pregnant, thinking about becoming pregnant, or who has recently had a baby. It should certainly be required reading for any birth professional certification program. --International Childbirth Education Association

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By San Diego Mom on November 21, 2011
Format: Perfect Paperback
I went through PPD/anxiety after my first child was born. It seemed to come out of nowhere and I was hanging on by my fingernails when a supportive friend sent me this book. In retrospect, I'd probably get the book postpartum depression for dummies, but this book got me through a real crisis. Another reason it was helpful was because the mental health clinicians I worked with didn't seem to really get my situation, but this author did. The clinicians I had knew enough to recognize it was a serious situation, but PPD is so much more serious because you are talking about two lives, the mother's and the baby's, who are at risk.

For new moms who are suffering: this is easy to read, even when you have trouble focusing on anything. Useful for women suffering from Postpartum Anxiety/ Depression as well as those who care for them. Women, give this to your friends, family, spouse, etc to help them understand what you are going through and help them learn what to say and what not to say.
