This book got me through when I thought I was the only person who had perinatal depression. It helped me understand that depression during pregnancy is similar to postpartum depression, just less common and less understood. I appreciated the author giving a voice to women who have suffered with hormone induced depression.

Very much on the fence about this one...
Lots of good info, but a terribly slow read, very medical, not well explained. Too much info on how good/okay the medications are, not nearly enough on other therapies. But I do appreciate that this book is out there to educate on depression from before and after perspective, it happens!

This book was not at all what I expected. It felt like a big advertisement for the benefits of using anti-depressants during pregnancy. It gave no alternatives to prescription drug use. I would not recommend this book for a woman looking for a natural pregnancy experience with alternatives to chemical use.

I really learned a lot about pregnant women in general, depressed women in general and depressed pregnant women specifically.

Good reference for women experiencing prenatal depression. Case studies and medical information are invaluable.
