Praise for When Postpartum Packs a Punch

“First I had a baby. Then I felt crazy.’ Such a powerful and poignant beginning to this important book on postpartum illness. What Kristina Cowan offers goes way beyond the courage of sharing her own and other personal stories. When Postpartum Packs a Punch speaks the language that postpartum families long for; it is rich with compassion, hope, and much-needed resources. This book is hugely informational, it is comforting, it is healing.” —Karen Kleiman, author and founder of The Postpartum Stress Center

“Are you feeling the punch of the postpartum period? Many new parents do. But in her book, When Postpartum Packs a Punch, Kristina Cowan helps the reader understand the scientific and personal side of this often unanticipated problem. This well-researched and well-written book can help you see that you are not alone in your struggle, and that there is help.” —Dr. Jonathan S. Abramowitz, clinical psychologist, professor, and international expert on OCD and anxiety disorders

“If there was ever a book for fathers to educate themselves about perinatal mental health, it is this incredible book.” —Mark Williams, founder of International Fathers Mental Health Day, speaker, author, and campaigner

“Most books on perinatal mental health do not give a full chapter to trauma related to childbirth. Kristina Cowan interviewed the leading experts in the field and the chapter on birth trauma is beyond excellent. It is informative, accurate, and provides hope to anyone who might be struggling with this difficult experience. I appreciate the information she provides on the recommended treatment. This exceptionally written book should be recommended to anyone working in the field of perinatal mental health.”
—Shannon Kane, postpartum therapist in Alberta, Canada
