Good Moms Have Scary Thoughts:
A Workbook for Perinatal Depression & Anxiety
WellMama has teamed up with author Karen Kleinman of the Postpartum Stress Center to offer their book “Good Moms Have Scary Thoughts” to families, healthcare providers, and agencies that work with new and expectant parents in the Pacific Northwest. Over 90% of new parents experience intrusive or “scary thoughts” yet many people are afraid to talk about them. Through the Postpartum Stress Center’s #SpeakTheSecret campaign, they have compiled the real intrusive thoughts submitted by new mothers into a beautifully illustrated workbook. This is an excellent conversation tool for healthcare providers to be able to speak to their clients about perinatal depression and anxiety, and can also be used as a self-healing mechanism for new and expectant parents. Help WellMama and Postpartum Stress Center break the stigma around intrusive thoughts by purchasing this book for friends and loved ones expecting a child or for professionals who work with new and expectant parents. A portion of proceeds support WellMama’s peer support and professional education programs for perinatal mood and anxiety disorders.
