Product Description

Review

'The author of this collection herself suffered from post-natal depression, and it was her own experiences that led her to put together this collection of stories. Ten women (including the author) have related their personal stories of how post-natal depression affected their own and their families lives. A further chapter is devoted to discussions with some of the partners of the women who contributed their stories to the book. This book would make insightful reading for professionals who work with sufferers of post-natal depression as well as anyone who has experienced it.' -- Family Matters 'Cara Aiken was one of the one in ten new mothers who have to cope with Surviving Post Natal Depression. She tells her own and other stories, and offers suggestions and advice based on personal and professional experience.' -- Church Times 'This book tells the stories of 10 women who have all suffered from postnatal depression (PND). The women draw on their personal experiences to offer practical advice. This approach offers real insight into the disease and its ramifications for the whole family... I recommend this book to anyone with a professional or personal interest in this debilitating disease.' -- Cheryll Adams - Professional office/research and practice development 'This is a very useful book, written in a clear, easy to follow style, making it advisable both for doctors and all those working in general medicine, to obstetricians and, of course, midwives.' -- European Journal of Psychiatry 'I found these stories very moving and enthralling in the way they painted the full horror and dreariness of depression. Consideration is also given to the plight of new fathers who sometimes suffer depression either from the effect of coping with depression in their partner or independently. There are contributions from a psychiatrist, a health visitor and the founder of the Association for Post-Natal Illness. These explain the full range of problems that fall under the umbrella term "post-natal depression" and that treatment needs to be geared to the particular problems of the patient. Finally there is an attempt to draw the threads together and give advice and hope to others.' -- Pendulum

If you have any interest in PND for any reason -buy this book. I am one of the contributers so I guess I am biased but I just wish there had been something like this when I was ill. It is honest, straight from the heart and gives real reasurance about the future to sufferers and good information to professionals

Excellent from the heart 'tear jerking' information. Needs to be read by all sufferers and their carers/families. A bible for doctors and health visitors giving an insight of invaluable information.

I got this book as I did not know where to turn for help and understanding and felt totally alone, although I wasn't. It is such a fantastic book and with real experiences from real people. It demystifies post natal depression and acknowledges the feelings that are not always easy to understand. It makes you realise that you are not going mad and you will get better.

I really liked this book as I think when suffering from PND it is so helpful to read other mums stories of the illness and their recoveries to give other sufferers hope. It shows a good insight into the complex and different symptoms of PND and the women have been very inspirational and brave in sharing their stories. Only criticism is I would like some of the stories to give more detail of their symptoms but this is only because I was so interested in reading about them! This book has definitely helped me through my recovery. K Kitchen

When I first met Cara my first thought was what an intelligent, intense, humane and deeply sensitive person. We met when Georgina was just 5 and Tasha just 2. It seemed to me that Cara was as passionate as me about the things she holds dear in her heart and her devotion to her children was unrivalled.

We discussed the book right from the off and without any hesitation I agreed to do whatever necessary to contribute and ensure that women in our position had a better understanding of what PND actually was. I believe that I was the only person in the book that suffered from delayed Puerperal Psychosis and severe PND that my contribution would be an invaluable part of showing that there really is a 'light at the end of the tunnel' even for women who suffer this horrendous type of depression.

I love the way that each woman has a different story to tell, inspirational and moving in such an eloquent way and in a way that is easily understood to the lay person. It gives a concise insight into the varying degrees of PND and the affects it can potentially have on even the most stable of relationships/people.

I have since suffered another trauma in my life, breast cancer and have just had an operation to remove most of it. Hopefully, they have gotten rid of this hideous enemy that invaded my body without prior warning or invite.

I will continue to educate people with regards to PND but I now have another string to my bow - cancer. Anyone that knows me will take comfort in the knowledge that I will not suffer this illness in vain and will make sure that all the support and information is available to women who are going through exactly the same as myself. Luckily, I have been given another chance in life to share my experience in a positive way and show that no matter what life throws at you there is always a way through - we all just need to find our own path.

Really disappointed by this book, it's simply a collection of stories of depression and what happened, no information on how women got better and what happened next. It offers no hope or guidance for sufferers of PND, simply stories of other women's depression. This may be useful for medics or research purposes but not for women suffering with PND sadly.
