Book Two of the Warrior Mom Book Club- The Ghost in the House

Check out the latest post at Postpartum Progress announcing our second book in the WMBC. It's a great read about the genetic and environmental issues of maternal mental health.
Please carefully read the book description prior to purchasing, as I understand that considering how the potential of untreated mood issues might impact your children can be a trigger. However, I do want to share that in reading the book the first time, even while still in recovery, I found myself less concerned with this aspect and more interested in how my own issues were shaped by my risk factors that included my own mother's mental health issues. Somehow, this actually helped me to alleviate some of my own unnecessary guilt for having had PPD...like there was a "reason" outside of my control (which of course was always true- PPD is not anyone's fault, but truly accepting that is challenging).
