Over 90 percent of new mothers have scary, intrusive thoughts about their baby and themselves. What if I drop him? What if I snap and hurt my baby? Mothering is so hard - I don't know if I really want to do this anymore. Gosh, I'm so terrible for thinking that! Yet for too many mothers, those thoughts remain secret, hidden away in shame that make you feel even worse. But here's the good news: you CAN fee better! Author Karen Kleiman - coauthor of the seminal book This Isn't What I Expected and founder of the acclaimed Postpartum Stress Center - comes to the aid of new mothers everywhere with a groundbreaking new source of hope, compassion, and expert help. Good Moms Have Scay Thoughts is packed with world-class guidance, simple exercises, and nearly 50 stigma-busting cartoons from the viral #speakthesecret campaign that help new moms validate their feelings, share their fears, and start feeling better. Lighthearted yet serious, warm yet not sugary, and perfectly portioned for busy moms with full plates, Good Moms Have Scary Thoughts is the go-to resource for moms, partners, and families everywhere who need help with this difficult period.… (mere)

I wish I'd had this book postpartum. It's still good to read now, both personally and of course professionally. I have seen the cartoons circling the internet and I'm grateful there's an awareness campaign regarding postpartum depression and anxiety. It's an important topic not addressed sufficiently and definitely not in sufficient detail (the anxiety part is so important!) in our society so I'm happy to see it presented in an accessible format.

One of my complaints is that it's pretty hetero- and cisnormative and I'd love to see it expanded in future editions. All the partners are male and everyone seems to identify as female.

My other main issue is that this book seems very targeted towards middle-class and above mothers, and even among them mothers of a specific type. The part about barriers to getting help and talking to healthcare providers didn't really address the reality that Medicaid (at least in Illinois) cuts off at 6 weeks postpartum - and many psychiatrists don't accept Medicaid or the managed care plans that go with it. No one is stressed about having to go back to work at their minimum wage job at one week postpartum. I LOVE emphasizing self-care but what does that look like when you have no disposable income and no gym membership or money for daycare (like in the accompanying cartoon)?

And I love the diversity of skin tones but there are more types of inclusivity. I wish that, in parts when discussing having more than one child, a range of family sizes was depicted. Where is the depressed/anxious mother who just had her 7th baby? The book discusses allowing time for your body to go back to a pre-baby weight but where are the mamas who were plus-size pre-pregnancy?

I don't want to give the wrong impression - I like this book a lot and think it's incredibly valuable. I just 1) have a professional opinion as a midwife and 2) think it could be even better and I'd love to push it further in a next edition. ( )
