One in seven mothers suffers from a disorder on the postpartum depression spectrum; another 20–30 percent of them deal with above-average anxiety. First published in 1994, This Isn't What I Expected became the go-to resource for postpartum depression. This second edition has been updated in an effort to help women and their partners sort through all the noise and myths to focus on getting the help they need. Dr. Valerie Davis Raskin and social worker Karen R. Kleiman offer their expertise in this guide to self-help and professional treatment for one of the most misunderstood and misdiagnosed mental illnesses. They provide compassionate support and solid advice for mothers with post-partum depression and the partners who can help them through it.
