Depression After Childbirth Summary


Depression After Childbirth: How to Recognize and Treat Postnatal Depression by Katharina Dalton

For anyone concerned with post natal depression, male or female, this revised and enlarged book, reflects the substantial developments that have occured in recent years and aims to provide a greater understanding of the suffering that it causes to the mother, her baby and family. Above all it will help mothers to recognize their own symptoms and seek the correct treatment. Drawing on many case histories from her own controversial but dramatically successful work, the author attacks the popular idea that postnatal depression is caused by a combination of sleeplessness, lack of outside contacts, and loss of independence. She argues that a cure will be achieved only when it is recognized for what it is - a hormonal change that occurs in a woman's body after childbirth. The recent recognition of the function of progesterone receptors in the limbic area of the midbrain is highlighted in this book as well as the evidence of successful use of progesterone in preventing a recurrence of postnatal deporession. This book is also aimed at social workers and GPs.
