Overview

Although self-help has been an integral strategy of the women's movement, the burgeoning self-help publishing industry and growing popularity of talk shows encouraging personal confession have provoked vicious attacks on self-help from many feminists. Rock-a-By Baby examines the postpartum depression support group movement and exploring the relationship between gender, the ideas and strategies of women's self-help groups and feminism. Taylor uses interviews and personal letters, talk show transcripts, organizational newsletters and a survey of postpartum group leaders to illuminate conflicts played out in the arena of women's self-help.

    THE worst book on postpartum depression I've ever read!

    According to the rules of review from Barnes & Noble, my review cannot make any comments that focus on the author. I don't understand that because the author IS the book. Anyway, Taylor talks of the 'distress' of motherhood and how PPD sufferers have 'labeled' the illness to justify their validation. Taylor lacks the first hand knowledge to understand PPD in order to explain it to others effectively. As far as the 'distress' of motherhood, I know women who wanted to die, or worse, wanted their children to die. That's not distress, that's war. As far as labeling the illness for validation, women have been afflicted with PPD all throughout history. The lack of a label for the illness is simply another aspect of the discrimination and inequality women have endured throughout time. We've known all along what PPD was, societal ignorance was the problem. Women were MADE to have babies - how dare that not be a completely wonderful and fulfilling event! However, I do applaud this book for bringing publicity to the plight of women with PPD. All I am saying is that your money will be better spent on other resources.
