As a perinatal mental health clinician, I was so happy to discover this book. 1 in 6 women experiences postpartum depression/anxiety and there are not nearly enough resources out there, especially for second time moms concerned about how another potential bout of depression/anxiety might impact her family. This is a lovely resource to assist parents in starting conversations with their young children about how things might go after a new sibling arrives. It gets ahead of any confusion and anxiety that might occur if mom does go through a rough patch postpartum and reassures both children and adults that things will be okay. 

From the writing to the illustration, this book is great. It is a gem of a book for someone that wants to approach postpartum depression with a child. It breaks taboos and opens up about how to discuss it strategically.
