Motherhood can be an overwhelming transition for every woman -- whether she's single or married, unemployed or financially solvent. Numerous studies have shown that women are at their highest lifetime risk of suffering from depression in the weeks and months after having a baby.

Postpartum Depression offers a comprehensive, authoritative guide to this disorder. It includes solutions to problems ranging from minor adjustment disorders to severe depression, and reveals the personal experiences of dozens of women who have recovered from postpartum illness.

Both positive and enlightening in its approach, Postpartum Depression teaches new mothers how to regain their good health.
