I am Dr. Shoshana Bennett. I am a clinical psychologist and author of Postpartum Depression for Dummies and I am also a survivor of two life-threatening bouts of postpartum depression. It took two and a half years before my body came back to normal. I did not receive the help that I needed, and it is my passion and my mission to educate mental health professionals and medical professionals and the public to minimize suffering, even prevent unnecessary suffering. So they will not need to experience what my family and I did for many years.
