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.

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!
Even without that, she mentions the necessity of spiritual help and nutrition and not just medication, but most of the book focuses on the medical helps. There is barely anything beyond a few lines about proper nutrition.
Still, it is not without strengths: her chapters for spouses, parents, and family members were very good.
I would recommend When Postpartum Packs a Punch (Cowan) paired with Spurgeon's Sorrows (Eswine) to people instead.
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.
