Abstract
Pregnancy and childbirth are a happy and joyous time for some women, but for others the experience can be one of anxiety, fear, and confusion. Because our society cherishes pregnancy and motherhood, many women suffer in silence when their experience is anything less than sublime. How do they explain their unhappiness to spouses, friends, and family, and how can they know if what they are experiencing are the normal mood fluctuations of pregnancy, or symptoms of a more serious problem? In this book, Dr. Shaila Misri, an expert on the psychology of pregnancy and postpartum, offers specific advice on the wide range of emotional issues that come with parenthood, including the more serious emotional disorders that often cloud a pregnancy and the early days of motherhood. For example, she discusses the serious but very common problem of postpartum depression, showing women how to distinguish between normal postpartum blues and clinical depression and explaining how and when they should get professional help.
