Postpartum depression is hard on a marriage. In their private practices, authors Karen Kleiman and Amy Wenzel often find themselves face-to-face with marriages that are suffocating, as if the depression has sucked the life out of a relationship that was only prepared for the anticipated joy of pending childbirth. What happens to marriage? Why do couples become angry, isolated, and disconnected? Tokens of Affection looks closely at marriages that have withstood the passing storm of depression and are now seeking, or in need of, direction back to their previous levels of functioning and connectedness. The reader is introduced to a model of collaboration that refers to 8 specific features, which guide postpartum couples back from depression. These features, framed as “Tokens,” are based on marital therapy literature and serve as a reminder that these are not just communication skill-building techniques; they are gift-giving gestures on behalf of their relationship. A reparative resource, Tokens of Affection helps couples find renewed harmony, a solid relational ground, and reconnection.

Created by an internationally recognized expert in the treatment of postpartum depression and anxiety, and author of several books on perinatal distress, this book provides the perfect format to introduce a postpartum woman to evidence-based recommendations for healing. Moods in Motion is a unique coloring book which addresses the specific areas of distress facing new mothers. Each illustration depicts a symptom followed by an adjoining illustration along with descriptions of recommendations for healing. We are learning more about the benefits of art therapy techniques to distract an anxious mind. Unfortunately, negative, unwanted thoughts are a common phenomenon causing much stress to postpartum women. Moods in Motion provides a restorative tool so moms can gain control over how they are feeling and enjoy a creative outlet at the same time. In this way, Moods in Motion is more than a coloring book which will ease stress. It is an illustrated guide toward recovery which enables any postpartum woman to actively participate in her healing. As you color your way through the symptom and healing pages, you will envision and internalize suggestions that bring you closer to feeling like yourself again!

It should be a time of joyous anticipation–the happiest time in a woman’s life. But for many women, the joys of pregnancy are clouded by feelings of fear, sadness, and confusion. And unlike postpartum depression, which is widely portrayed in the media and embraced by the medical community, depression during pregnancy has been rarely discussed and often misunderstood–until now. In this groundbreaking book–the first to focus exclusively on depression in pregnancy–Dr. Shaila Kulkarni Misri, a leading reproductive psychiatrist, draws on her twenty-five years of clinical practice and research to offer hope, help, and healing–as well as a provocative, myth-shattering examination of a subject that has too long been shrouded in darkness. The numbers are surprising: up to 70 percent of pregnant women experience some degree of depressive symptoms, and of those, 12 percent meet the diagnostic criteria for major depression. Although it is at least as common as postpartum depression, which occurs after a child’s birth, pregnancy-related depression is often cloaked in silence, shame, and denial. Pregnancy Blues lifts the veil on this heartbreaking–and very treatable– illness, examining the key social and biological factors that can come together during pregnancy to create a climate in which depression and anxiety thrive, as well as offering the many effective treatments that are available. Discover: • How to recognize the signs and symptoms of depression–and know when to seek help • The role of female hormones: why women are more vulnerable to depression than men • How depression can “hide” behind physical complaints, such as back, stomach, or even chest pain • The unspoken connection between infertility and depression • The antidepressant controversy: the facts on specific drugs, their safety–and when medication is the right choice • Breastfeeding and medication–the risks and benefits Plus helpful self-tests and resources, information on alternative treatment options–from therapy to acupuncture–and much more. A work of daring and compassion, Pregnancy Blues challenges the underlying traditions and beliefs surrounding pregnancy and motherhood–and explores how those misconceptions have led to the drastic underdiagnosis and undertreatment of depression during pregnancy. A must-read for women and those who love them, Pregnancy Blues is at once an extraordinary roadmap to healing and an eye-opening report on a medical issue that no woman can afford to miss.

When Postpartum Packs a Punch offers solace to mothers who have faced traumatic birth and perinatal mood disorders, as well as a chorus of different voices-parents, experts, and researchers. All are singing the same song: while the U.S. has made strides in caring for new mothers, we still have far to go. Stigma silences women, and blinds those on the sidelines. Stories of others' struggles are an antidote for stigma, because they let mothers know that they're not alone. Kristina Cowan describes her own experience with traumatic birth and postpartum depression, and weaves it together with stories from other parents. Representing diverse backgrounds and perspectives and underscoring the prevalence of mood disorders after childbirth, these stories serve as a balm. They help heal and stir hope. And they show how an overcoming spirit can fight terrors of the mind-and win. "Are you feeling the punch of the postpartum period? Many new parents do. But in her book, When Postpartum Packs a Punch, Kristina Cowan helps the reader understand the scientific and personal sides of this often-unanticipated problem. This well-researched and well-written book can help you see that you are not alone in your struggle, and that there is help." -Dr. Jonathan S. Abramowitz, clinical psychologist, professor, and international expert on OCD and anxiety disorders "Most books on perinatal mental health do not give a full chapter to trauma related to childbirth. Kristina Cowan interviewed the leading experts in the field and the chapter on birth trauma is beyond excellent. It is informative, accurate, and provides hope to anyone who might be struggling with this difficult experience. I appreciate the information she provides on the recommended treatment. This exceptionally written book should be recommended to anyone working in the field of perinatal mental health." -Shannon Kane, postpartum therapist in Alberta, Canada

Is this your life? You've been feeling just plain awful for far too long -- depressed, exhausted, achy, stressed-out, bloated, and forgetful. In fact, you're beginning to find it hard to remember the last time you felt really well -- or even just okay. So you go to the doctor -- perhaps even a series of doctors -- who tell you either that your test results are normal and you're fine or that you have to learn to live with your symptoms. Maybe they even prescribe medications that don't help or that knock you out with side effects. You're fed up. You want your health back. If this sounds familiar, read on. You may be suffering from what Dr. David Edelberg calls the "Triple Whammy" -- a three-pronged assault on body and mind made up of unrelenting stress, low levels of the feel-good brain chemical serotonin, and your ever-shifting hormones. You can benefit from The Triple Whammy Cure, a simple but highly effective three-week plan that can stop this devastating attack and let you feel good again. It's important to take action now because, if Triple Whammy symptoms aren't stopped, Triple Whammy disorders can eventually develop: chronic anxiety, chronic fatigue syndrome, memory loss, PMS, menopause problems, postpartum depression, depression, fibromyalgia, wintertime blues, TMJ, irritable bowel syndrome, brain fog, migraines, sleep problems, overeating, and weight gain. If you've been diagnosed with one or more of these, you can start feeling better soon by following the Three-Week Cure and the special healing path provided for your condition. Author Dr. David Edelberg is a recognized pioneer in treating chronic illnesses and a practicing physician with thirty years of clinical experience. Dr. Edelberg's Triple Whammy Cure is a natural program that provides powerful but easy solutions for each of the three whammies, with steps that include: boosting your serotonin levels without taking an antidepressant, natural supplements backed up by the best studies for smoothing hormonal swings, and a stress-relief menu that's more fun than work. There's also a delicious serotonin-boosting eating plan. And reading his healing paths for Triple Whammy disorders is like having a virtual appointment with Dr. Edelberg. The Triple Whammy Cure is so simple that Dr. Edelberg's thousands of patients wondered how it would work -- until they tried it themselves and felt so much better only twenty-one days later. Case stories in the book show how these patients got their lives back. Now, The Triple Whammy Cure can help you get back your life, too.
