There is an excellent tool at the end for husbands/support people for what ...more

What a great book about PPD. It was warm (versus clinical) and full of great insight and ideas. Plus it addressed all my areas of concern. I think it will be a big help to me and I would strongly recommend it to any other moms-to-be who are worried about PPD reoccurring.

A great resource for anyone trying to make a decision about whether or not to have another baby after PPD or for women who have already made that decision and want to be prepared for the possibility of PPD again.
