Synopsis:

Becoming a new parent is one of the biggest changes one can face in life. You are experiencing enormous changes biologically, hormonally, and emotionally. Your whole life may seem uprooted. It makes sense that you might be feeling significant mood changes as well. With 1/5 of mothers and 1/10 of partners experiencing depression and anxiety when having a baby, this workbook will remind you that you are not alone. It will empower you in managing your changing moods throughout your pregnancy and postpartum/postnatal recovery, helping explain what you are feeling and offering tangible skills that will help you feel better.

This workbook is written with sleep deprived new parents in mind, providing helpful information in short, digestible segments intermixed with thought-provoking activities. You can pick it up and put it down, reading it on your timing, without the information becoming overwhelming. The workbook covers the entire range of mood symptoms, from the Baby Blues, to anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, PTSD, OCD, and more.

The Pregnancy and Postpartum Mood Workbook uses inclusive language and content applicable to all new parents. There are chapters dedicated to parents with babies in the NICU or with medical issues, the impact of mood symptoms on partners, and the impact of culture and identity on mental health. There is also a resource section with a wide array of support available to meet the needs of any parent. Adoptive and single parents, same-sex, BIPOC and gender non-conforming parents, as well as clinicians and birth workers will find this book to be an invaluable resource.
