Postpartum.net provides information on the various mood disorders that affect new mothers, as well as contact details for volunteer-based support groups in all 50 states and more than 30 countries. Specialized groups exist for subpopulations, such as military families and partners of women suffering from postpartum depression.
Motherisk.org, a service of the Toronto Hospital for Sick Children, has “up-to-date information on the safety of medications” for mothers undergoing treatment for anxiety or depression during nursing. An online bookshop features more detailed resources.
Postpartumprogress.typepad.com is maintained by blogger Katherine Stone, who recovered from postpartum anxiety and writes from the sufferer’s point of view. The resource-filled site earned her WebMD.com’s Health Hero award.
