Need direction on postpartum project

  1. Hello all,

    I was wondering if anyone could direct me to a good website or online journal about post-partum depression. I am in a group doing a teaching/learning project about post-partum depression, focusing on teaching and informing the support person(s) of a new mother or pregnant mother about recognizing the signs and symptoms and what steps should be taken if the s/s are recognized. Any references would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Jen:kiss
