By L. van Erp on January 17, 2008
Format: Paperback
I suffered PPD after the birth of my second son. As a stay-at-home mom caring for two small children, I felt overwhelmed and lost. I was suffering, as were those around me. After reading Dr. Shoshanna's book, I was able to make positive changes to bring balance to my life and overcome my PPD. I stopped beating myself up for not being able to "do-it-all." I started caring for myself by putting good nutrition in my body, taking breaks to have "me" time, and asking for help with housework and childcare. By doing these things, I saw changes immediately and I feel better than I have in a long time. And this book helped my family understand how I was feeling and how to support me. I wish I would have read Dr. Shoshanna's book before I had my first child. Now that I am pregnant with my third child, I plan to continue with the changes I've made and have a much happier experience with my newborn and my family. Thank you Dr. Shoshanna for writing this book and for helping so many women. All mothers (whether first time or not) should read this book.

This book goes way beyond the typical book about post-partum depression. It covers so many ways to understand and treat PPD - holistic, traditional medicine, alternate therapies, resources online, and much much more. Presented in a no-nonsense way, with compassion and sensitivity, this book, written by a woman who has "been there done that" will provide wanna-be mothers, soon-to-be mothers, already mothers, grandmothers, caregivers, doulas etc. with viable ways to understand and deal with PPD. Preventative ideas as well! I highly recommend this book, and encourage you to read it or give it as a gift!

Its okay.. I dont feel like I learned anything that you don't already know from picking up on a few online articles. They just constantly repeat themselves over and over.. the book could be half the size if they didnt repeat so much.

I was able to heal and become the most amazing mom because of Dr. Bennett. I was suffering from the worst symptoms of PDD and it felt like the storm was never going to lift. My OB referred me to Dr. Bennett for counseling. I read this book before starting the sessions with her and knew I was on the right path. I found myself in her book, all my symptoms were explained and it helped me understand the feelings I was experiencing. The book provided such an understanding of my symptoms I was more aware of what I needed to focus on for each counseling session. Dr. Bennett is an uplifting counselor with such clarity I was able to leave each session with a renewed sense of self. Medication was my last resort and I am thankful I never reached that point.

Finally, a book on postpartum depression for both women AND men! And it's not just any book; it's the best one, written by the leading expert on the subject. Not only does Dr. Bennett discuss how men play a critical role as partners of women with PPD, but also how men suffer too from this crippling condition. For new dads with PPD, this book has just the tools they'll need to begin repairing their lives. It's also an invaluable resource for health professionals who want to best help women, men and families affected by this painful - yet treatable - condition.
