Only book I found that deals with Antepartum depression

I experienced severe depression in my first trimester, and I couldn't find anything at all that dealt with the topic. I wanted to be excited about the pregnancy but felt totally disconnected. This book - as well as an outpatient psychiatric program through the hospital where I delivered - helped me deal with my depression and my pregnancy.

Most Informative Book of its Kind

Dr. Misri does an amazing job of hilighting the different aspects of PMDD and post-partem depression. I especially loved the section on Garlok. This book is a must read for any person who wishes to be more informed on an important issue in our society today.

A must for any woman, spouse, family or friend suffering.

Dr. Misri does a great job of explaining depression as it relates to pregnancy and the postpatum period. She includes stories of women that she has counseled over the years. These stories help the reader to better understand the various forms that depression can take. I highly recommend this book to anyone who thinks they or someone they know may be suffering from depression related to a pregnancy, including miscarriages and still births.
