Post-Natal Depression challenges the expectation that it is normal to be a 'happy mother'. It provides a radical critique of the traditional medical and social science explanations of 'post natal depression' by supplying a systematic feminist psychological analysis of women's experiences following childbirth. Paula Nicolson argues that, far from it being an abnormal, undesirable, pathological condition, it is a normal, healthy response to a series of losses.

Post Natal Depression makes an important contribution to the psychology of women and feminist research and will be of interst to psychologists, social scientists, nurses and doctors.

Reviews

'I would recommend this book wholeheartedly both to those working in the field, whether as researcher or practitioner, or for students. The book could also provide much food for thought for the more general reader of health and clinical issues.' - Deborah Biggerstaff, University of Birmingham, in the 'Journal of Reproductive and Infant Psychology'

'Whilst written from a perspective of feminist research, this book provides a wide view of the social factors affecting mothers who experience post-natal depression . . . The subject of post-natal depression, as presented here, would be of interest not only to psychologists and social scientists but also to midwives and health visitors, as in these professions a broad view of childbirth as a normal, healthy life event is increasingly encouraged.' - Health Psychology Update
