It's a great blessing when a new mom with postpartum depression (PPD) is fortunate enough to be diagnosed early by a knowledgeable medical practitioner or therapist.

One Mom S Journey To Motherhood

Author Ivy Shih Leung shares her not-so-perfect road to motherhood in this book that is part memoir and part self-help guide, reflecting lessons learned in the form of helpful tips and information to empower readers on the biological and sociological roots behind postpartum depression (PPD). She also seeks to raise awareness of the myths of motherhood and the stigma of PPD that contribute to the silent suffering of many mothers, as well as the importance of adequate social support in the early postpartum weeks. A culmination of Ivy’s frightening PPD journey and her emergence from it with a passion to learn more about perinatal mood disorders, this book is fueled with passion to help other women and their families, anger from the unnecessary suffering Ivy went through from the lack of information available to the public about PPD, her doctors’ ignorance and lack of sensitivity, and public remarks like, “There is no such thing as a chemical imbalance”—all of which shows there’s still a long way to go in terms of educating the public about an illness that is suffered by one in eight new mothers. With side effects that include shame, helplessness, and despair at a time that is supposed to be one of the happiest in a woman’s life, Ivy wants to help fellow PPD advocates get the message out that PPD is not a mind-over-matter thing, as those who don’t know any better tend to believe. PPD is an illness that must be taken seriously. We must all remember that the health of the family unit depends on the mother’s well-being. “… Ivy Shih Leung’s voice as a storyteller is strong, loud, and clear. Ivy is a survivor of postpartum depression, and through the written words on each page you can hear her roar.” —Jane Honikman, Founder of Postpartum Support International

Depression affects women almost twice as often as men, with about one in four women suffering from it in her lifetime. While depression may strike at any time, studies show that women are particularly vulnerable during their childbearing years. Despite the increasing awareness of this deeply concerning issue, many studies and health professionals still continue to focus almost solely on postpartum depression, ignoring the fact that depression is just as likely to affect women while they're trying to conceive and during pregnancy. Now, in this comprehensive, empathetic, and candid book, Dr. Ruta Nonacs, a senior member of the Center for Women's Mental Health at Massachusetts General Hospital and mother of two children herself, confronts the seldom talked-about issues of pregnancy-related depression, including: Becoming pregnant while being treated for depression Infertility-related depression and the effects of fertility treatments Understanding the effects of maternal depression on spouses and family Postpartum depression and anxiety Nonacs also addresses the many complicated issues in a woman's life during the span of her childbearing years -- education, career, marriage, childbearing, and child rearing -- and discusses the ways in which depression often takes hold during potentially stressful times. Nonacs identifies many of the symptoms of depression associated with pregnancy and discusses treatments and cures, as well as ways to minimize effects of depression on family and friends. Straightforward and honest, as well as emotionally sensitive and deeply moving, A Deeper Shade of Blue gives every woman who has suffered from pregnancy-related depression the information she needs to get the best care for herself, during pregnancy and beyond.

For all, it causes discomfort. For many, deep distress. For some, it robs them of life. Postpartum depression (PPD) is a far more common, misunderstood, and life-debilitating illness than most people realize. At a time when most moms expect to feel happy and content, those suffering from PPD experience the crushing weight of despair and anxiety. Living Beyond Postpartum Depression offers hope to not only those moms but also their husbands, family members, and friends. Because women battling PPD, and those walking with them through this valley, often don’t know what to do, this book explains what they’re facing physically, emotionally, and spiritually and how these three aspects are inseparably intertwined. Best-selling author Jerusha Clark shares her own PPD story while offering scripturally based truths that will help restore, heal, guide, and support readers. With practical advice, treatment options, and steps to moving forward, Living Beyond Postpartum Depression is the compassionate, biblical encouragement those affected by PPD need.
