I remember saying aloud "What am I thinking?" when I became pregnant with my second child after a previous struggle with postpartum depression. I couldn't imagine having to go through it again. I had read Karen Kleiman's first book "This Isn't What I Expected" and it helped me immensely. I saw that she had another book and my own words caught my attention. "What am I thinking? " My questions and my fears and the issues that frightened me so were addressed in this book. Karen's book has helped to alleviate some of my fears and has taught me what I need to know as I welcome my second child into my family. I will read it again before my new baby is born. This is a must read for anyone who has struggled with PPD and wonders how she might handle having another baby. Thank you, Karen.

After suffering a long battle with postpartum depression my husband and I were very nervous about having more children. I read the book then shared it with him. We were able to use the tools it gives to have conversations that enabled us to make an informed decision. This year we welcomed our wonderderful new son. Easy to read and very usable book. As the director of a PPD suport group I reccomend it often!!!!!!

The book was helpful but I just want to say something to all of the moms out there who are reading it. I had ppd with my first baby but I did not with my second. It was a totally different and wonderful experience so please know that just because you had it with one does not mean that you will have it again. For me, the second baby was so much easier because I had been through so much with the first. It is really scary to even think about going through that again but I am living proof that it is well worth it! Good luck! :)

Wish I'd had this for my first pregnancy. It helped a lot in preparation for the birth of my son and coping with PPD the second time. My husband got a lot out of it, too. I'd recommend it.

I found this book to be a good plan for treading into risky waters. It put anxious worries into perpective and encourages you with your decision no matter what it may end up being. I didn't want to put it down.
