Thanks so much for the suggetions Nancy...I am going to email her that link and pick up one of those books for her. She is really struggling and had a consultation with a phsycologist prior to leaving the hospital. I suggested she try to get out with Mackenzie and go walking but she had a c-section and she lives in Manhattan and has to climb stairs with the baby and stroller to leave her apartment so it's really hard for her. So reading is quite a good option for her and I know how much it can make someone feel better just to hear others experiences and know that they aren't over reacting or alone....Again thanks a bunch..Hope you have a great thanksgiving[:)]

Hey Mada,

Sorry this is so late-I have been away from my computer for a bit. My friend who is a psychologist recomended these 2 books for ppd. "This is Not What I Expected" by Kleiman Raskin and "Women's Moods" by Sichel & Driscoll. The 2nd also discussed depression during preg. These are some websites that I really like; www.ppdsupportpage.com
www.postpartum.net (This one is my favorite)
www.depressionafterdelivery.com

I am glad you are there for your sil, Mada. You are a good support for her. She may need some profesional help.

And good riddance! What a creep!

I wish I knew of some good books; I think it will be tricky for her to separate the effects of getting divorced from those of ppd.

Good idea....I know, my husband and I had some choice words about him!! He has been an a#*h*#*e since they got married 2 years ago. He told her he was swept up in the moment but doesn't love her[}:)]. Whatever, all I have to say is Kharma !!!!

Oh, that poor thing!!!! That just made me feel sick! What an #$%^&*( the least he could do is let her recover and try to enjoy her newborn. SOME men are such selfish pigs. I dont know of any books, but babycenter has some forums for mothers with ppd, maybe they could help.

My sister-in-law had a little girl Oct.25 and the next day her husband filed for divorce[}:)]. She is having a really hard time and is having severe ppd. Does anyone know any good books about it? I have been calling her often, but I thought maybe some literature would be good. She is a very "booky" kind of person...Thanks
