"One Mom's Journey to Motherhood is a wonderfully thorough and accessible treasure trove of research, compelling information, and encouraging advice. It is sure to become a favorite, like a great cookbook that you return to over and over, knowing that you'll find just what you want and references too! Ivy Shih Leung has written a thoroughly informed book with such a warm approach, it is easy for the reader to take in the solid information and the message of hope and recovery at the same time. Reading that Ivy has overcome her own struggles and written such a wonderful guide is in itself empowering and hopeful. Every chapter is full of information, written with honesty, clarity, and perceptive suggestions. I am very careful about books to recommend to families and providers who want to learn about pregnancy and postpartum mental health; this is one book that I can recommend without reservation. Ivy's background in biology, her careful research, and her strong spirit have worked together to create an insightful author, and we are all the better for it. Thank you Ivy for being such an inspiring advocate and sharing this contribution to the field of perinatal mental health!"

"The more women who speak out about their experience with postpartum depression, the more likely it is we will be able to eradicate the stigma that prevents new mothers from asking for help. I'm so grateful to Ivy for her courage and honesty, and the willingness to tell her story. This book has the power to help another woman see that she is not alone."

Ivy is a passionate advocate who honestly shares like a friend to educate and empower others through her deeply personal experiences of infertility, childbirth complications and postpartum depression.
