One thought on “Mothering Through the Darkness: Women Open Up about the Postpartum Experience

  1. If you ve never experienced postpartum depression PPD , it is tempting to write off books on the subject, thinking that they are not good investments of your time I admit that I paused when considering whether to buy this book I don t call what I experienced after my daughter s birth postpartum depression because it was not long lasting and as soon as I started getting than two hours of sleep per day, I vastly improved.But don t write off this book.Because this book isn t just for mothers who h [...]


  2. I love that you can read a story at a time, whenever you have a moment without feeling as though you have to figure out where you were in the plot This book gives voice to the parts of motherhood that are not so easy to talk about the sadness, the crushing despair, the anxiety, the intrusive thoughts, and the numbness that often affect women right after giving birth This is a topic that desperately needs attention Though Sprenger and Smock s collection of essays represent diverse voices and exp [...]


  3. I am in awe of each of the women brave enough to bare their souls in this collection of gut wrenching experiences with postpartum depression I saw a bit of myself in several of them Many of them told stories of prenatal depression, miscarriages, birth traumas all contributing to the complexity of becoming a mother Postpartum depression is treatable, and as these women tell, there is hope and a normal life on the other side of the darkness.


  4. I appreciated reading these women s stories some were very relatable Being a few years away from the postpartum experience, I thinking knowing what other women go through would have gone a long way toward helping me get through those first few rough months.
