Valuable Resource For Women Suffering With Depression In Pregnancy

Laura Chapman of http://www.psychguides.com writes:

If a woman has a history of depression, she is more likely to suffer with depressed mood during pregnancy. However, even women without previous mental health problems can develop low mood when pregnant. Women may not appreciate that they are suffering from depression which can adversely affect their own health, as well as the well-being of their unborn child. This helpful guide on the subject of coping with depressed mood while expecting highlights the importance or receiving timely diagnosis and treatment. The various treatment options are discussed, providing an overview of the non-drug therapies available for women with milder depression or for whom antidepressants are contraindicated.

For over twenty years, I have parented four grandchildren with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome: a disorder caused by prenatal exposure to alcohol. Please read of our family struggles and challenges at http://www.challengedhope.com. My two ebook memoirs available on Amazon titled: Two Decades Of Diapers, and, Fetal Alcohol Syndrome: The Teen Years, describe the struggles my grandchildren and I experienced during their youth and teenage years. I have also written fiction, including a six-book English seaside series, titled, Under the Shanklin sky. I am now embarking on a new adventure creating children's picture books, designed specifically with kids with FAS in mind. The two main characters of the book are Strawberry & Cracker, twins with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome. The first titled The School Day focuses on the special supports the twins need at school for a successful outcome. The book is due out in the fall of 2017, to be followed by more in the series, all focused on the daily challenges faced by children with FAS.
