  • I've lost all faith in doctors. No one has been educated on this subject and it's time for a change. If you are lost and feel like you have no one to turn to, this book is for you.

    This book is a clear, easy to read guide on what you can do yo help yourself, prenatally and postpartum. I suffered from PPD after the birth of my daughter and I want to avoid it from coming back with my current pregnancy. My first trimester was a nightmare; Insomnia, panic attacks, depression, etc. I raised my dose of Celexa and feel very comfortable doing so, as it's important for my baby to have a calm Mama.

    I love you, Dr. Shosh. You are a life saver.

  • This is the only book of its kind, and I can't recommend it highly enough. There is tragically little good information out there for women who want to become mothers and have been diagnosed with mood disorders. I'm trying to become informed before I plan a pregnancy, and this is the only book I've found that contains real information backed by actual science. I am tired of being talked down to, so it was a huge relief to find that Dr. Bennett cites sources and studies without sounding scary or cold. This book reassured and informed me and my loved ones, too. It will be even more useful when I am actually pregnant!

  • This is good background if you're considering antidepressants in pregnancy - it will help you feel better with your decision. I was a little disappointed though. The book lacks a lot of specifics, and the common refrain is "talk to a therapist." The author recommends a certain nutrition program, but won't tell you the name. She does the same for an exercise program.

    Most of the resources and links listed are no longer active websites.

  • I have been on and off of meds for over 10 years and am now planning on having a baby. I got this book hoping it would help me to decide if I should be on them or not and was hoping for some alternatives. It gave a few alternatives, but it's the same information you could get from any "stress relaxation" article on the internet. After finishing the book I still have no idea what to do about medication during pregnancy.

    The only points I really found in this book:

    *If you need to be on meds, go on the meds. Being too anxious or depressed during pregnancy is far worse for your baby than almost any medication.

    *If your doctor doesn't believe you need to be on meds, but you know you are too depressed or anxious - find another doctor.

    *Just because you are pregnant does not mean that you will be "glowing" and happy all of the time. You may or you may not.

    *Find a therapist whether or not you are on meds.

    It was very wishy-washy. It basically said: This could happen or that could happen. Nothing new with that statement.

  • Dr. Shoshana Bennett really knows this subject, after going through PPD herself and making it a point to not allow another woman to go through this alone. She has also written PPD for dummies which I would also recommend. She was the first person that I was able to contact and connect with on the subject of PPD and I'll always be forever grateful to her. Please know how real PPD is but also know that taking the right steps - IT WILL GET BETTER!!! Count on this knowledge and please let those that love you read this information as well for support. It's difficult while you're in it, but looking back and taking the experts advice, will get you though it and hopefully, like myself, you can then pay it forward! Thank you Shoshana for everything and all those, especially my husband, that stood by me through it all!

  • It is such a struggle to find good advice about taking antidepressant medications in pregnancy. This book really helped me make a thoughtful and confident decision. I suffered with debilitating postpartum anxiety after having my first baby, and it unexpectedly returned during my second pregnancy. I delayed treatment for weeks as I tried to find an alternative to taking medication, but nothing helped and I continued to suffer. I am so glad I read this book and found the answers I needed to make a good decision.

  • I was hoping to find a book that would be good research about what issues taking antidepressants could cause while pregnant, and if there were save drugs to take. This book was more designed to share stories of women who chose to or chose not to take antidepressants and why that was a good choice for them. There was a brief explanation of how drugs are graded for their level hazard to a fetus, but I was looking for something different.

  • A lot of great information and many topics I did not consider before reading this book.
