Book addresses depression during pregnancy

Filed under: ,

Despite strides in understanding and treating depression in recent years, Dr. Ruta Nonac, MD, says, symptoms of the illness in pregnant women are often overlooked or passed off as a normal side effect. The truth, according to Dr. Nonac, is that women are actually most vulnerable to depression during childbearing years and about 10-15% of women suffer from depression after the birth of a child; the same number experience depression during pregnancy.

That's why the award-winning researcher in the area of women's depression wrote A Deeper Shade of Blue, a recently published book especially for women suffering from depression during pregnancy now available through Amazon and many other online retailers.

The doctor's website will serve as an extension of the book, providing women with the most up-to-date medical information on relevant topics, such as treatment options for women suffering from depression or anxiety during pregnancy or postpartum, miscarriage and other types of pregnancy loss and use of medications during pregnancy and while breastfeeding.
