This new volume in the Perspectives on Diseases & Disorders series provides an overview of postpartum depression, including diagnosis, prevention, and current research. Controversies surrounding postpartum depression?including the necessity of screening, the impact of postpartum depression on breastfeeding, and postpartum depression as a legal defense?are also addressed. Personal stories of people impacted by postpartum depression, including a mother living through postpartum psychosis and a husband going through postpartum depression with this wife, are featured in the text.
"In general, these books are excellent sources for high school readers to enhance their critical thinking skills. They could easily be used as jumping off points for research projects and debate topics."
