Pregnancy Blues: What Every Woman Needs to Know About Depression During Pregnancy

It should be a time of joyous anticipation_the happiest time in a woman?s life. 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.
