          Postpartum Depression

          October 25, 2004

          Postpartum depression (PPD) overwhelms women with dark feelings of despair, leading them to not only contemplate hurting themselves, but also harming their own babies. Dr. Phil provides tools to help PPD sufferers and their loved ones out from under this dark cloud.

          “It’s Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde”

          Update: A year and a half later.
