Kleiman's own commitment to postpartum women, which has endured over many years and resulted in the formation of the Postpartum Stress Center, has now brought us another excellent and timely publication. For as we begin to do a better job of identifying and assessing women suffering with pregnancy related mood disorders,treatment approaches must keep pace to maximize women's recovery options. The value of Kleimans book at this educational, legislative, awareness and prosocial juncture cannot be overestimated.

Karen is an amazing professional and her dedication to the field can be seen throughout the book. For anyone seeking information for postpartum depression, this book provides a realistic view of the women who experience postpartum and the women who help them.
For those seeking support for postpartum depression, this book provides facts, information and resources, as well as demystifies the therapeutic process. I think women will appreciate her honesty and understand the importance of seeking appropriate support in order to feel better.
Thank you Karen for continuing to train professionals, educate women and share your wisdom.
