Thanks to those of you who have participated in the first two Warrior Mom Book Club reads and to those of you who have read and commented on the reviews here.  In case this is all new to you, check out this post. The Warrior Mom Book Club brings together moms with postpartum depression and other perinatal mood and anxiety disorders to read and discuss postpartum depression books.  I hope you will email me at atlantamom930 {at} gmail {dot} com so you can be added to the mailing list and join in the conversation with your fellow Warrior Moms.

Sleepless DaysThe Warrior Mom Book Club is a fairly new feature at Postpartum Progress.  The book club might just be for you if you enjoy casual talk about what you’re reading in the midst of your busy life.  Anyone is welcome to participate.  We use google docs and a private Facebook group to communicate while we are reading and then to put together an interview in the form of questions and discussion after reading that is then published here on the blog.

We began the club with Adrienne Martini’s awesome book, Hillbilly Gothic and then The Ghost in the House by Tracy Thompson.  It’s a really eye-opening account of maternal mental health and its impact on the entire family from both a genetic and environmental perspective.  If you haven’t read them yet, I highly recommend adding them to your list.

Meantime, next week we are beginning our third book, Sleepless Days by Susan Kushner Resnick.  This is probably the book I related most to out of the dozens I have read about postpartum depression.  I am really excited to hear if you find her story resontates closely with you, as well.  Please order your copy and be sure to email me if you’d like to be added to the group!

  1. SO happy you are loud and proud about PP… I am too. I have 7 kids and suffered with baby #5. Darkest days of my life. I skipped it with #6 and it re-visited with baby #7… while pregnant… More women need to hear the voices about PP. Thank you
