About 50 to 80 percent of new mothers experience some postpartum blues, some ten to 20 percent have longer-lasting postpartum reactions, and about one or two in a thousand experience postpartum psychosis. Providing an important resource for expectant and new mothers, the authors outline various types of postpartum reaction. Board members of Postpartum Support International, psychologists Dunnewold and Sanford offer a psychobiological explanation for both "normal" and pathological reactions, discuss factors that predispose mothers toward a severe reaction, and provide a good deal of information about when, where, and how to get help. By deromanticizing our conception of new motherhood, this book will help women evaluate their negative reactions more realistically and get appropriate help when necessary. Though the book is at times repetitive, the information is extremely useful. Highly recommended.
