Postnatal Depression: Facing the Paradox of Loss, Happiness and Motherhood

Paula Nicholson (2001)

This books explores the 'paradox of new motherhood'; that is that the happiness of having a much wanted new baby also co-exists with loss (loss of sleep, loss of independence, loss of identity etc.). A research based book that is more suitable for readers wanting to gain a better understanding of their conflicting emotions towards motherhood.
