A must-read for anyone affected by postnatal depression. Postnatal depression (PND) affects 10 to 20 per cent of new mothers in New Zealand and can persist for months – even years – if not detected and treated. Yet many women suffer in silence. In Mothers Cry Too, New Zealand psychiatrist Dr Sara Weeks, a leading expert in the field of maternal mental health, explains how to recognise and deal with a range of issues, from the ‘baby blues’ to more serious conditions. Practical and supportive, Mothers Cry Too offers guidance for new mothers, and their partners and families, on how to cope with the demands of a new baby and manage symptoms of depression, anxiety and other postnatal psychiatric conditions. Dr Weeks demystifies one of the most common complications of childbirth, while sharing case studies based on more than 20 years’ experience in counselling new mothers. Her helpful hints cover everything from exercise and diet to managing stress and the effects of sleep deprivation.
