"This book removes the shame and stigma surrounding a scary topic that is rarely addressed because it is so highly misunderstood. Backed by their extensive clinical backgrounds and supported by current research, Kleiman and Wenzel offer specific strategies and reassurance for new mothers who have scary thoughts, while furthering the understanding of those professionals who treat them."
- Diana Lynn Barnes, PsyD, Past President of Postpartum Support International, USA; co-author, The Journey to Parenthood: Myths, Reality and What Really Matters
"The title alone of Dropping the Baby and Other Scary Thoughts confidently announces that this experience, which has historically been described in hushed tones, is now ‘out of the closet’. With an affirming nod to postpartum women, their families, and their caregivers, Karen Kleiman and Amy Wenzel have pooled their collective expertise and deftly created a comprehensive and highly readable resource that simultaneously informs and reassures."
