This is a practical guide for mothers who are experiencing postpartum depression and anxiety. The book is based on the experiences of thousands of women and describes what has helped them get through this difficult time. From the foreword: For women experiencing postpartum depression this Self-Help Guide is an essential first line aid. Before being offered counselling and medication, a woman with postpartum depression needs to know that she has not been struck by some unnameable, dark and irrational unhappiness just when she expected she would be enjoying one of the happiest experiences of her life. She has a well-known condition, the condition affects many others, it has universal features and universal causes, and there is help available for it. She is not alone. The Self-Help Guide immediately helps to lift the burden of shame that afflicts a new mother with postpartum depression, the shame which is a hallmark of this experience and one of its first signs. “I have a beautiful baby and a wonderful husband, and I feel there must be something wrong with me if I can’t be more happy,” is the usual formulation of that shame. The very hearing of it should alert the health professional or friend to offer this guide. On opening it, the depressed mother will immediately find herself facing information and insight, empathetically presented, that provide a map both to her current troubled thoughts and feelings and to the paths leading back to wholeness and health. It is indispensable also to the father who himself is often bewildered and who has enormous difficulty hearing and understanding his partner’s sense of desperation, fear, and isolation. It is being heard that is the first need of a woman with postpartum depression, and the very first step in the healing process. This booklet hears attentively and it speaks with compassion and wisdom. Gabor Maté, m.d. Family Physician and Writer Vancouver, British Columbia
