Postpartum Support International of Washington recently released their booklet about postpartum mood disorders called Beyond The Birth: What No One Ever Talks About. They write this on their website:
Beyond The Birth: What No One Ever Talks About is a short booklet that describes the emotional transitions to motherhood, and the difference between “baby blues” and more serious Postpartum Mood Disorders. It discusses causes, risk factors, and treatment options in easy-to-understand terms, and features a list of resources and further reading.
All types of health care providers, including pediatricians, obstetricians, social workers, nurses, doulas, midwives, family practice physicians and psychiatrists have found the book useful. Expectant and new mothers and their families also use it to understand what they are experience and, if necessary, look for help.
The cost of the book is $6.50 and it’s available in English and Spanish. You can buy the book here.
