Nicki Jeffery's Encouraging Mums With Hope gives practical advice for new mothers in the first month after their baby is born. As a survivor of postnatal depression, Jeffery understands that the postnatal period is when women are most vulnerable to developing mental illness. She uses her firsthand experience and the knowledge of experts to take women through the early postnatal period and into a discussion about postnatal depression.
This is a book that will speak to any new mother who is overwhelmed by the initial experience of motherhood. It provides an insider's guide to coping with depression that is both compassionate and which also gives agency to the mother herself.
