Book Summary:

"As a psychotherapist and educator of future mental health practitioners, I believe this work fills an important gap in reference books for professionals who care for childbearing women. Since the volume provides invaluable neurobiological research on depression and anxiety, I recommend this work to all health and mental health professionals."--Illness, Crisis and Loss Over the past three years, pregnancy related mood disorders have become the focus of health care advocates and legislators alike with subsequent reflection in nationwide media. Statistics on the prevalence of perinatal mood disorders suggest that up to 20% of women experience diagnosable pregnancy related mood disorders. The growing recognition of these common disorders, coupled with an increasing knowledge base about the dire consequences of untreated maternal depression, has propelled this issue to the fore of national public health priorities. This increasing awareness has also resulted in recent legislative and healthcare initiatives to screen, assess, and treat such disorders. On April 13, 2006, Governor Jon S. Corzine (D -NJ) signed a law requiring all new mothers to be educated and screened for postpartum depression. This law is the first of its kind in the country, but many states and federal advocates are proposing similar laws. The motivation for states and the federal government to adopt education and screening program is high and may soon be a federal mandate. But a major barrier to successful implementation of such programs is the lack of available resources to train healthcare professionals in this specialty. This book offers a major resource for healthcare professionals, mental health professionals, and medical, nursing, psychology, and social work students who will be confronting this problem in their practices. The contributions, by renowned experts, fill a glaring gap in the knowledge professionals need in order to successfully manage maternal mental health.

Book Summary:

Mood and Anxiety Disorders During Pregnancy and Postpartum earns its important place in the literature by detailing our current understanding of the course, diagnosis, and treatment of psychiatric illness during pregnancy and postpartum, including breast-feeding -- a top priority today because we now know that active maternal psychiatric illness during pregnancy and postpartum can exert long-term negative effects on child development and cause significant morbidity for the mother. In just five concise richly informative chapters, the nine distinguished contributors to Mood and Anxiety Disorders During Pregnancy and Postpartum dispel prevailing beliefs and offer invaluable guidance in treating women during pregnancy and postpartum: Course of Psychiatric Illness During Pregnancy and the Postpartum Period -- Despite the enduring belief that pregnancy is a time of emotional well-being for women, emerging data show that pregnancy is instead a time of increased vulnerability to psychiatric illness. Diagnosis and Treatment of Mood and Anxiety Disorders During Pregnancy -- Though the use of psychotropic medications during pregnancy and postpartum raises concerns, the accumulating data support the use of certain SSRIs/tricyclic antidepressants, especially when balanced against the risk to both mother and child of depression during pregnancy. Management of Bipolar Disorder During Pregnancy and the Postpartum Period: Weighing the Risks and Benefits -- Although the onset of bipolar disorder (BP) tends to occur during women's reproductive years, surprisingly little is known about the impact of the menstrual cycle, pregnancy, postpartum, breast-feeding, and menopause on the course and treatment of bipolar disorder. Postpartum Mood Disorders -- Women experience a dramatic increase in their risk of developing severe psychiatric illness during postpartum for a full year after delivery. Often overlooked, postpartum disorders must be identified and treated as early as possible to reduce the mother's risk for recurrent and treatment-refractory illness and the child's risk for long-term development problems due to the detrimental effect of maternal depression. Use of Antidepressants and Mood Stabilizers in Breast-feeding Women -- This expanded clinical appraisal of the literature on antidepressant and mood stabilizer use in breast-feeding women shows that additional detailed pharmacokinetic investigations are urgently needed to enhance our understanding of nursing infant exposure and the role(s) of pharmacogenomics in determining infant exposure. Meticulously referenced and remarkably succinct, Mood and Anxiety Disorders During Pregnancy and Postpartum provides critical information about the course of illness during pregnancy and postpartum to help guide effective individualized treatment decisions-decisions that are ultimately based on the patient's wishes.

Book Summary:

Postpartum Depression: Causes and Consequences chronicles a decade and a half of research into this relatively common mood disorder experienced in various forms by between 10-40% of all women following delivery. The author has conducted three major studies all of which are presented in this volume. The most recent study comprises the bulk of the monograph and presents the results with regard to psychological, social and hormonal factors in postpartum depression and the blues. Information regarding the epidemiology, etiology and treatment of postpartum depression is also included. The work described in this volume represents the attempt by the author to begin to address several of the major unresolved questions regarding the prevalence, causes, and consequences of postpartum mood disorders. The important negative implications of poor maternal adjustment for both the new mother and her family as well as the increased awareness of childbearing women who are now demanding answers and information make this book indispensable for all practitioners in psychology, psychiatry and obstetrics-gynecology as well as for the students of these disciplines.

Book Summary:

Mood and anxiety disorders in women represent an increasingly important area of research and treatment development. The authors take a broad biopsychosocial and developmental approach to the issues, beginning with anxiety disorders in adolescence and progressing through the life phases of women to menopause and old age. All the disorders are covered, from anxiety and borderline personality disorder to stress and late-life depression. Particular attention is paid to questions of vulnerability; epidemiological and clinical evidence showing gender differences in such disorders; aetiological explanations in terms of biological (including hormonal) as well as psychosocial parameters, and treatment implications.

Book Summary:

In medical school, we were taught First, Do No Harm. While studying in obstetrics, we were basically told, Do not interfere with the natural process of pregnancy and delivery so that nature could run its course. Let the obstetrician add medication because they know the most. In the world of defensive medicine, why would you add medication during pregnancy? The malpractice insurance for ob-gyns is astronomical. Women have been delivering babies since the beginning of time, and itll all turn out okay. As an intern, I was terrified of killing someone. I would check and recheck my work to make sure that I did not harm someone. So the noninterference of medication use during pregnancy and postpartum made sense to me.

Book Summary:

I am going crazy, I thought. I need to sleep, but I can't. This is awful. This is the worst feeling in the world. Is that John? Did I just hear John? Hypersensitive to every sound in the house, I wasn't sure if I was truly hearing John or simply hearing other noises. He had been crying for so long throughout the day, it was as if the memory of the cry were still ringing in my ears, even if he wasn't crying at that moment. I didn't want to hear any noises from within the house, the house that had begun to feel as small and constricting as a shoebox. Ana Clare Rouds, author of the gripping memoir Dancing On the Edge of Sanity, shares her painfully honest journey through the dark labyrinth of postpartum depression and anxiety. Readers will find a friend in Rouds as they explore this engaging tale of early motherhood, maternal mental health and recovery. Rouds has wonderful friends, a supportive family, and a healthy newborn boy. Everything around her indicates that life should be just about perfect. However, soon after the birth of her son, Rouds begins to experience severe panic attacks, anxiety, and obsessive thoughts. These rarely discussed symptoms of a postpartum mood disorder lead her to seek help at her local hospital's emergency room, where her symptoms are grossly misunderstood. While some information about postpartum mood and anxiety disorders has become more available to new mothers, and to those who are in the position of supporting their loved ones who may be affected by it, each case of this disorder can showcase vastly different symptoms. Sleep deprived, insecure about her mothering skills, and troubled by her increasingly intrusive obsessive thoughts, Rouds struggles to find answers about her condition. As her descent into depression, anxiety, and confusion intensifies, Rouds must fight to regain the life she once had. Told with Rouds' trademark warmth and humor, the story explores the complexities of early motherhood while also revealing the utter lack of understanding about, and resources for, the variety of postpartum mood disorders that exist. Through the help of her family and friends, anti-depressants, and outside resources, she is once again able to bring herself back from the edge of sanity. Dancing On the Edge of Sanity is a must read for anyone who has experienced, or who knows someone who has experienced, the crushing effects of postpartum depression, anxiety or a related illness. As knowledge about this condition increases, it is important to realize that not all postpartum mood disorders are alike. Rouds authentic memoir is an important contribution towards understanding this vital area of women's health, an area that is often clouded in much unnecessary misinterpretation. This heartfelt, riveting memoir is ultimately one of hope, an uplifting tale of a mother's love that should not be missed. "This memoir is a poignant narrative of the 'lived experience' of postpartum obsessive-compulsive disorder. It speaks to the resilient soul of its author and to the intense need for continuous education for healthcare providers and women to the unique aspects of perinatal mood and anxiety disorders. Continuing to raise the level of awareness will hopefully let pregnant and postpartum women know that they 'are not alone.'" -Jeanne Watson Driscoll "Rouds raises awareness by sharing her very intimate journey with postpartum depression and anxiety. This book is an important reminder that misinformed healthcare practitioners and family members alike can interfere with the recovery process. This is why it is vital that good, accurate information about perinatal mood disorders is available. Rouds brings attention to this important issue." -Karen Kleiman "In her debut memoir, Rouds tells the story of her struggle with postpartum mood disorder...The strength of Rouds' account is her straightforward, honest voice...This energetic memoir has useful knowledge at its heart." -Kirkus Review

Book Summary:

Dorothy R. Ruhwald's book, From Shattered Dreams, chronicles Dorothy's personal experience with postpartum psychosis and postpartum depression. Excerpts from medical records are included, showing clearly the difference between her subjective experience and the clinical, objective view of observers. The book emphasizes Dorothy's journey through mental, emotional, and spiritual healing. Although From Shattered Dreams is a book about postpartum psychosis and depression, because of the similarity of symptoms between postpartum psychosis/depression and other mental illness, it would be a valuable support to those touched by any mental illness. Dorothy has shared her experience with postpartum psychosis through an interview on CBC radio, an article in the Calgary Herald newspaper, and an article in Woman's World Magazine. She has also had the opportunity to tell her story to health-care workers at a conference on Postpartum Mood Disorders.
