Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Revolutionary Approach to PPD In Europe and a small community of North Americans understand the concepts explained in this book: PPD is a hormonal illness and can be prevented and treated in that manner. An excellent and comprehensive read about the study of modern Post-partum depression and Pre-menstrual syndrome. I highly recommend.
