This review is from: Postnatal Depression: Facing the Paradox of Loss, Happiness and Motherhood (Family Matters) (Paperback)
Very misleading title as the author is not Dorothy Rowe,but a psychologist. The author gives a good and 'down to earth' outline of the effects of depression in the post natal period,and it confirmed the experiences of many people I've met. The author is highly critical of all health personnel however, and fails to fully realise the social aspects of an illness which is a product of society,as well as a significant and serious experience for the individuals who suffer it. No discussion is given about the possible resolution of depression, and it's enrichment of the life of the psyche if traversed successfully.
