Beyond the Baby Blues is a comprehensive Australian resource guide to emotional wellbeing during pregnancy and early parenthood. Readers will receive solid scientific advice combined with the experiences of individuals and families affected and the professionals who treat them. The book includes the scientific explanation for postnatal depression, an exploration of perinatal screening and the ideals and the realities of early parenthood.
The authors want to increase understanding and open the conversation about depression during and after pregnancy so that parents do not suffer alone. Caring professionals, family members and friends explain how they helped sufferers of depression, as well as how their caretaker involvement affected their own lives. Included are self-care strategies aimed to help parents take care of themselves and their families throughout the difficult first year of parenthood.
Beyond the Baby Blues is supportive and encouraging, deeply personal yet backed up with science and medical expertise.
