Pec Indman Ed.D., MFT
author of Beyond the Blues, A Guide to Understanding and Treating Prenatal and Postpartum Depression
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 place blame on the Website for posting this on their resources page, but I also have to put blame on the author/publisher of this book.
The book deals more with the husband and how he can be supportive of his wife while she's going through PPD. I'm not against such a book, but it is misleading.
Not to mention the book, as many reviewers have already pointed out, is nothing more than pages upon pages of bullet points. Nothing that goes into real depth.
With U.S. society wanting men to step-up and be real fathers, this book adds to my personal frustration of finding any real support in helping men/dads adjust and coup with pregnancy development and fatherhood.
How can we expect men to do their job properly when they don't have the resources to begin with?
