How to Recognize, Treat, and Prevent Postnatal Depression

"I was utterly defenseless when it happened to me.

For a month it was utter hell.

I felt as if I was going insane."

--From the Foreword by Esther Rantzen

  • It is estimated that eight out of ten mothers go through a period of `post-baby blues' and that one in ten suffer from a more serious form of postnatal depression.
  • It is never easy for the mother or for her family and friends to understand exactly what is happening, and to distinguish between the relatively mild `blues' and the more severe cases of depression.
