The Postnatal Survival Guide is a new and life changing book for women with postnatal depression (PND) or who are struggling to cope during the early months and years of motherhood.
As many as one in five women suffer from postnatal depression but fail to seek help - either from a perceived stigma or lack of knowledge about the sources of help that are available. The Postnatal Survival Guide is a reassuring and empathetic companion for mothers who have lost themselves somewhere along the way and want to regain a sense of confidence and enthusiasm for life.
The Postnatal Survival Guide helps women to:
•Recognise when it is appropriate to seek professional help and explore the options available
•Improve their physical and emotional health
•Examine issues relating to their identity and strengthen their sense of self
•Deal with the practical aspects of having a baby – including sleep, relationships, childcare and work.
Author Cat Dean, herself a survivor of PND, is a trained life coach and shares practical tips and exercises to help the reader reconnect with herself and carve out a new and fulfilling identity as an individual, mother, and as part of a couple.
The Postnatal Survival Guide addresses every aspect of a woman's life: physical, emotional, spiritual, social and existential, discussing related issues and offering warm and reassuring guidance. With a foreword from respected PND expert Liz Wise, it also includes stories from other women who have experienced postnatal depression and who share their experiences of recovery.
