"How I wish I'd had this book when I suffered from postpartum obsessive-compulsive disorder! Pregnant and postpartum moms need to know that perinatal anxiety disorders are common and treatable, and that there's no need to continue suffering."
––Katherine Stone, editor of Postpartum Progress

What if my baby isn't healthy?
What if I can't handle the pain of labor?
What if I'm not a good mother?

If you have these thoughts, you're not alone. Anxiety during pregnancy and postpartum is much more common than many people know, and yet there are so few resources available to struggling new moms. If you're one of many women suffering from this treatable condition, The Pregnancy and Postpartum Anxiety Workbook offers powerful strategies grounded in evidence-based cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) to help you control your worry, panic, and anxiety.

Through a series of simple exercises and worksheets, you'll learn skills for relaxing yourself when you feel the most stressed. You'll also learn strategies that are proven-effective in reducing the frequency and intensity of anxious feelings many pregnant women and mothers of infants face. The book also includes a chapter that offers tips to help fathers understand and support their partners.

Many new parents feel anxious, and it's perfectly natural to have some fears during and after pregnancy. The problem is, anxiety can grow, disrupting your daily life and keeping you from enjoying being a parent. This effective workbook can help you keep your anxious thoughts at bay and get back to the positive thinking you've been missing.
