Publisher's summary

If you or someone you love is among the one in seven women stricken by PPD, you know how hard it is to get real help. In this definitive guide, postpartum experts Karen Kleiman and Valerie Davis Raskin offer compassionate support and solid advice on dealing with every aspect of PPD. Their proven self-help program, which can be used alone or with a support group or therapist, will help you monitor each phase of illness, recognize when you need professional help, cope with daily life, and recover with new strength and confidence.

Learn how to identify the symptoms of PPD and distinguish it from "baby blues"; deal with panic attacks, obsessive-compulsive urges, and stress overload; break the cycle of shame and negative thoughts; mobilize support from your husband or partner, family, and friends; seek and evaluate treatment options; and cope with the disappointment and loss of self-esteem.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.
