Pregnancy Blues: But for many women, the joys of pregnancy are clouded by feelings of fear, sadness, and confusion. And unlike postpartum depression, which is widely portrayed in the media and embraced by the medical community, depression during pregnancy has been rarely discussed and often misunderstood—until now.
In this groundbreaking book—the first to focus exclusively on depression in pregnancy—Dr. Shaila Kulkarni Misri, a leading reproductive psychiatrist, draws on her twenty-five years of clinical practice and research to offer hope, help, and healing—as well as a provocative, myth-shattering examination of a subject that has too long been shrouded in darkness. The numbers are surprising: Pregnancy Blues lifts the veil on this heartbreaking—and very treatable— illness, examining the key social and biological factors that can come together during pregnancy to create a climate in which depression and anxiety thrive, as well as offering the many effective treatments that are available.
A work of daring and compassion, Pregnancy Blues challenges the underlying traditions and beliefs surrounding pregnancy and motherhood—and explores how those misconceptions have led to the drastic underdiagnosis and undertreatment of depression during pregnancy.
A must-read for women and those who love them, Pregnancy Blues is at once an extraordinary roadmap to healing and an eye-opening report on a medical issue that no woman can afford to miss.

I finally found this plain English book at my local library after only finding some for women's health care providers at the university's library that weren't that helpful It was validating in the first chapter on "Great Expectations: And so, as simplistic as this may sound, at present, the most likely explanation for why some women become depressed while others do not would seem to be that each woman's brain is wired in a unique way.
The illness is better recognized and, therefore, more frequently diagnosed in some cultures than in others, but that doesn't mean it doesn't affect women of all cultures, in all socioeconomic groups, and at all.
In fact, ironically, when a woman's life has been going well and her expectations for perfection are high, her need to continue being "perfect" during pregnancy However he reacts, be it holding his tongue or lashing back in anger, any preexisting smoldering marital tension is likely to become inflamed as the woman's pregnancy proceeds and her depression deepens.
In the second part of the book regarding treatments, Dr. Misri a psychiatrist writes that "in her opinion and experience, pharmacological therapy is indicated if a woman: Sichel and Driscoll in Women's Moods , herbal treatments, acupuncture, etc. Misri notes that studies have shown that massage therapy shows significantly positive changes And studies have proven that "counseling in conjunction with medication is more effective than counseling alone. And we need to educate ourselves and talk about the issue much more.

This book got me through when I thought I was the only person who had perinatal depression. It helped me understand that depression during pregnancy is similar to postpartum depression, just less common and less understood.
I appreciated the author giving a voice to women who have suffered with hormone induced depression.
View all 5 comments. Very much on the fence about this one Lots of good info, but a terribly slow read, very medical, not well explained.
But I do appreciate that this book is out there to educate on depression from before and after perspective, it happens!

With more pregnancy blogs, sites and apps than you can shake a baby rattle at, does one really need a day-by-day pregnancy book? Not really.
Think of it like this: While those books can be great for a laugh, partners need more from a book than a giggle. And, of course, not all partners are dads-to-be. The Birth Partner , now in its recently updated fourth edition, is just what the doctor or midwife ordered. Its sole purpose is to mold your partner into an excellent, empathetic birth coach by running through all the standard need-to-knows, like how to prepare for labor and knowing when it starts, what an epidural is and when a Caesarean birth may be required.
This science-focused book is a fab break from the usual pregnancy reads. Sounds snoozy? Great With Child is a unique and heartfelt collection of daily letters between a new mom and her friend who is pregnant for the first time.
As a heads-up, the author discusses a miscarriage she experienced. If this subject hits too close to home, you may not want to read this book. Read more: Everything you need before baby arrives What to eat while pregnant: Food guide and cheat sheet.
