Written by a social psychologist and a midwife, this book moves beyond the conventional 'medical' approach to emotional problems following childbirth. It examines the range of potential causes of maternal distress and postnatal depression and puts forward suggestions for a practical, multidisciplinary and woman-centred response. The personal cost to women of postnatal depression is highlighted by the use of case history material and the Appendices offer a wealth of information on resources and avenues for help.
